published Trailblazers: Cybersecurity & Data Privacy profiling individuals in the legal industry who have made a difference navigating the complex and constantly changing field of cybersecurity and data privacy. Among those profiled this year was Venable’s managing director of cybersecurity services Ari Schwartz
The profile discussed Schwartz’s involvement in cybersecurity issues since 2004, his six years at the Department of Commerce, and his role as senior director for cybersecurity on the White House National Security Council.
Asked about what the future holds for cybersecurity, Schwartz said to expect more breaches. “Boards and management are becoming more knowledgeable, but the understanding of risk will continue to evolve. There will be a regularized way to view cyberrisk, which every company will need to understand and follow.”
