David Fagan Named a “Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Trailblazer”

December 14, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC, December 14, 2015 - The National Law Journal has named Covington partner David Fagan as one of its “Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Trailblazers.” The list profiles 50 lawyers “who have helped make a difference in the fight against criminal cyber activity and towards adding much needed layers of data security in an increasingly digital world of commerce.”

Mr. Fagan leads the firm’s cyber and data security incident response practice and serves as co-chair of the practice on cross-border investment and national security matters. He counsels clients on preparing for and responding to cyber-based attacks on their networks and information, assessing their security controls and practices for the protection of data, developing and implementing information security programs, and complying with federal and state regulatory requirements, as well as on transactional matters involving the transfer of personal data. Mr. Fagan also has been counsel to companies in a range of cyber and data security incidents, including dozens of data security breach matters involving millions of affected consumers.

In its feature of Mr. Fagan, The National Law Journal noted that he was involved in the first security-related Federal Trade Commission consent decree with Microsoft for its Passport service. He has also negotiated frameworks for how the U.S. government mitigates cybersecurity risks arising from cross-border transactions.
