Commenting on her move to Venable, Ms. Danker said, "Venable is renowned for its capabilities in the cybersecurity risk management space. I look forward to collaborating with this prestigious team to develop robust privacy frameworks that enable our clients to protect their digital assets and more easily adapt to the ever-evolving regulatory environment."
