Crowell & Moring Lawyers Evan Wolff and Robin Campbell Named National Law Journal's Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Trailblazers

Washington, D.C. – November 4, 2016: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that two lawyers, Evan D. Wolff and Robin Campbell, have been named to National Law Journal's 2016 Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Trailblazers. This list honors lawyers who have “helped make a difference in the fight against criminal cyber activity and toward adding much needed layers of data security in an increasingly digital world of commerce.”

In honoring Wolff, co-chair of Crowell & Moring's Privacy & Cybersecurity practice, the National Law Journal (NLJ) notes that he has handled more than 100 breaches and “helped many companies navigate the countless legal challenges involved in cybersecurity – preparation, regulatory compliance and litigation – while ensuring full engagement from the legal and C-suite perspectives.” Looking ahead, Wolff says he “anticipates that companies will have to comply with increasingly complex cybersecurity government regulations and, finally, training programs will be critical.”

NLJ’s profile on Campbell, a senior counsel in Crowell & Moring’s Privacy & Cybersecurity and Health Care groups, highlights that she was asked by Hewlett-Packard to help with the European Union Data Protection Directive as it was implemented. Campbell said, “I was one of the first lawyers doing data breach response work. I later handled one of the first health care breaches after HITECH [Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act]. The Office of Civil Rights closed the case with no finding of HIPAA violations.” Campbell also works with connected cars and vehicle automation as part of the internet of things.
