Covington Bulks Up Cybersecurity Practice With Ex-Mandiant Consultant

July 18, 2016, The American Lawyer

James Garland and Steve Surdu are quoted in an American Lawyer article regarding the launch of Covington’s Cybersecurity Incident Response Team, highlighted by Surdu’s recent arrival as a Senior Cybersecurity Advisor. According to Garland, "The lawyers that do the interviews and oversee the forensic investigation, we're experienced but we're not engineers." He continues, "Engaging with IT people can be an exercise in having them teach us a new language."

Surdu says that it’s not only his ability to engage with information technology experts, but also company executives and board members that has helped his career.
