Jim is a partner in the Technology and Privacy Group and co-chairs the firm’s Privacy & Security task force. His practice leverages both his experience in sophisticated privacy, security and network intrusion issues and his experience in board level technology and outsourcing projects.
Jim has worked on numerous transformative technology initiatives, including a range of IT, BPO, HR, F&A, facilities management, ERP, cloud, ecommerce/online, open source and social media engagements. Privacy and security are central issues in nearly every technology and data centric initiative in Jim’s practice. Accordingly, he has worked extensively with clients on privacy and security issues and initiatives for a number of years, including having founded the firm’s privacy task force in 1998, which was the same year he wrote one of the first U.S. articles on the EU Data Directive. This includes extensive work on behalf of financial services, health care, telecommunications and other regulated companies, retailers, online advertising issues and international data transfer issues.
His practice also involves security breach management and response, including everything from notification of the affected individuals, to e-discovery and internal investigations and law enforcement issues. Jim founded and co-chairs the firm’s Security Incident Management and Response Team, a unique team devoted to cyber and security crisis management and response.
