Law360 Names Gabriel Ramsey a 2020 Cybersecurity & Privacy MVP

San Francisco—October 23, 2020: Law360 named Gabriel M. Ramsey, a partner in Crowell & Moring’s Litigation, Intellectual Property, and Privacy & Cybersecurity groups, a 2020 MVP for cybersecurity & privacy.

Ramsey is recognized for working with some of the world’s leading tech companies and high-profile victims of cybercrime in complex matters including, combatting criminal and state-associated hackers, decimating the criminal infrastructure of botnets, and handling the fall-out for corporate victims of a phishing attack.

In Ramsey’s profile, Law360 highlights his work “guiding Microsoft through a massive global effort to disrupt a network of millions of computers infected with malicious software” and helping the company “seize control of fraudulent websites used by suspected nation-state hackers to steal personal data.”

Ramey has developed models for dismantling malicious technical infrastructure through a combination of civil enforcement, extra-judicial technical means, and global collaboration with government and private sector partners.

When asked about one of his biggest challenges, Ramsey told Law360, “The internet's a big place, so there's many repeat players where you've already done something and you know it's a savvy hosting company, for example, who knows what to do, and it's an easy conversation, and then you may have folks who are just not so sophisticated and don't understand the urgency. So that's the challenge: always educating stakeholders to help you help everybody."

Ramsey told Law360 that “cybersecurity became more of a focus of his practice about 12 years ago, when he began partnering with Microsoft and other clients that had large digital platforms to build out their nascent programs for proactively dealing with emerging online abuses.”
