Regular management of responses to data security breaches -- including the largest governmental data breach on record -- that turn these incidents not into crises but into trust-building customer service encounters:
Through handling multiple breaches every week since 2005, he has developed an approach that has helped his clients avoid customer losses, brand damage and lawsuits, and even improve customer trust following breaches
This approach is proving critical as the worldwide rapid increase in the frequency and sophistication of both attacks and their detection is making data breaches and security fundamental components of customer relationship management
Global privacy and information security counsel to private and public sector organizations
Assistance in formulating “big data” plans, including:
Contracts that value and protect newly-defined data assets in new ways, and
