Covington Launches Cyber Response Team With Mandiant Pro

July 21, 2016, Law360

David Fagan and Stephen Surdu are quoted in a Law360 article regarding the launch of Covington’s new Cybersecurity Incident Response Team in conjunction with the arrival of Surdu and Jenny Martin. According to Fagan, “We’re a big firm with clients that span the globe. They can’t control when they have incidents, and you can get calls on a Friday afternoon from three different companies. We were experiencing a significant growth in number of those calls. So we’re getting ahead of the curve by identifying it and saying we don’t want to be in a position where we get four calls on a Friday and we can only manage three of them. We want to make sure that when our clients call, we can provide the best resources for them.”

Surdu says, “I am excited to join Covington’s cybersecurity incident response team. Covington’s cybersecurity practice is distinguished from those of other law firms because of its focus and experience on cutting-edge and complex investigations, its understanding of the underlying technology and its depth of expertise across multiple jurisdictions.”

“With the addition of Jenny and Steve, we now have multiple senior people with experience handling hundreds of breaches who can serve the role of providing direction and translation to our clients, and it ensures we have a team that can manage and respond to multiple incidents on the legal side at the same time,” Fagan adds.
