The Daily Journal Names Gabriel Ramsey a 2020 "Top Cyber Lawyer"

San Francisco—November 16, 2020: The Daily Journal named Crowell & Moring partner Gabriel M. Ramsey a “Top Cyber Lawyer” for the second consecutive year. The series honors 15 attorneys at the cutting edge of cybersecurity who advise companies on best practices and on navigating legal and regulatory mandates on privacy and data security.

Ramsey is recognized for working with some of the world’s leading tech companies and high-profile victims of cybercrime in complex matters.

In Ramsey’s profile, the Daily Journal notes “through technical expertise and the application of federal hacking and trademark statutes and state laws, he has decimated the criminal infrastructure of botnets, handled the fallout of phishing exploits, and disrupted ransomware attacks.”

The publication highlights Ramsey’s work with Sophos Group Ltd. and its Massachusetts affiliate to mitigate attacks against the company after they were targeted by a threat group. “Using federal court processes, Ramsey and his team obtained several injunctions transferring control of the attacker’s command and control infrastructure to Sophos,” the profile notes

The Daily Journal also mentions Ramsey’s work for Microsoft to “disrupt the “Necurs” botnet that installed malicious software on millions of victim computers that stole sensitive information from owners.”
