The Cyber Law Office of Maes, Ltd. helps businesses adopt cybersecurity frameworks that are applicable to their industries in the Greater Denver Area. Do not let your business become the next security breach headline. Secure your business with legal guidance from a certified IT engineer.
It is no secret that businesses face unprecedented challenges with the rise of increasingly brazen and sophisticated cybersecurity attacks. In the face of these threats, some businesses choose to take proactive steps to protect their assets, intellectual property, and reputations, whereas others do not.
Businesses in the latter category are not only exposed to potential legal liability, they also risk going out of business entirely. Responding to security breaches is very expensive, but the primary damage stems from the loss of consumer confidence. If a business’ customers are affected by a security breach, or do not feel that the business can protect their personally identifiable information (PII) moving forward, they will take their business elsewhere. Larger businesses may be able to survive the exodus of their customer base in the short-term, but smaller businesses are all but guaranteed to fail.
Fortunately, for businesses that have not made cybersecurity a priority, it is not too late to act.

Attorney Chris Maes has been an information technology (IT) consultant to businesses for over a decade. He holds gold standard cybersecurity certifications including Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Certified Security Specialty. Chris also possesses certifications that demonstrate an ability to securely design cloud and network environments via AWS Certified Solutions Architect (Professional) and Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing and Switching (CCNA R&S), respectively.
In addition to being an IT expert, Chris possesses the legal knowledge to help businesses obtain regulatory compliance by adopting cybersecurity frameworks that may apply to their respective industries, including, but not limited to, the following:
- The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
- The Center for Internet Security (CIS)
- Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL)
- ISO 27001
- Control Objectives for Information Technologies (COBIT)
- The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
Importantly, even if a business is not compelled to follow a cybersecurity framework, adopting one will make the business more secure. Cybersecurity frameworks can also serve as useful marketing materials to show customers that due care is being exercised to protect their sensitive data. Moreover, in the event of a security breach, legal liability can be mitigated if it can be shown that the best cybersecurity practices were being followed.
