I have a deep interest and experience at the intersection of business, technology, and law, particularly those issues involving information security and data privacy. I have experience representing clients on cybersecurity matters, deep knowledge of information security and data privacy issues, and extensive business experience.
As a trader at Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, I designed and programmed mission critical pricing and hedging software for the Taxable Fixed Income Group, and addressed business continuity and disaster recovery planning. Thereafter, I earned an M.B.A. with high distinction from the University of Michigan Ross School of Business, and subsequently returned to Morgan Stanley, during which time I earned the C.F.A. designation. After graduating with honors from The George Washington University Law School, I integrated my business experience into my law practice, and have had an active role in complex business litigation and regulatory matters.
As an attorney, I have also led cross-practice working groups to develop my firms’ information security and data privacy practices, and have spearheaded a variety of client work on cybersecurity matters, including drafting information security and data privacy policies, advising on various federal regulations, and assisting on breach incident response matters. Additionally, I have successfully passed the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) examination and the Certified Information Privacy Professional / US (CIPP / US) examination.
My professional and academic background is complementary, spanning both practitioner level skills with a strong theoretical grounding in business, law, and technology. Accordingly, I am uniquely positioned to make cybersecurity and data privacy a business discussion, explain complex technology issues to non-technical persons, and advise on corporate and consumer protection matters.
I am seeking a role in which I can bring my diverse skill set to bear and would be interested in hearing from anyone who is seeking a well-credentialed lawyer with background in information security and data privacy.
