Crowell & Moring Participates In New York Cyber Task Force Report on Cyber Response Readiness

New York – March 9, 2021: Crowell & Moring partner Evan D. Wolff served as co-chair for Columbia University’s New York Cyber Task Force as it released a new report calling for businesses and governments to work together to establish a national cyber response network. The report, “Enhancing Readiness for National Cyber Defense through Operational Collaboration,” details recommendations to create a “whole-of-nation” approach to combat malignant cyber activity and improve cyber readiness.

The New York Cyber Task Force, affiliated with Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, brings together leading voices in the private, public, and academic sectors to discuss the most pressing issues. According to the latest report, “these are the three groups that must integrate their knowledge, plans, and actions to preserve the benefits of the information revolution, while dealing with the threats.”

The newly released report addresses how to improve national cyber readiness and looks to the future at cyber threats that may be lurking as geopolitical power struggles continue and technology continues to advance. The Task Force offers a host of recommendations that incorporate a holistic approach to facing the cyber challenges of tomorrow, including public-private partnerships and other forms of collaboration.

Wolff, who serves as the co-chair of Crowell & Moring’s Privacy & Cybersecurity Group, has a national reputation for his deep technical background and understanding of complex cybersecurity legal and policy issues. Wolff has conducted training and incident simulations, developed response plans, led privileged investigations, and advised on hundreds of data breaches where he works closely with forensic investigators. In addition, he counsels businesses on both domestic and international privacy compliance matters, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the California Consumer Privacy Act. He is also a Registered Practitioner under the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework and serves as an adjunct professor at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.
