LegalTech Quotes Bunnell on Cybersecurity Threats

June 13, 2017

In LegalTech’s June 13, 2017, “Three Realities of Modern Cybersecurity,” O’Melveny partner Steve Bunnell is quoted about his work with the Department of Homeland Security, where he helped his team of lawyers not only understand potential cybersecurity threats, but basic technology in order to “ask better questions” and use more “security by design thinking earlier on.” Bunnell also noted that “there are also [data] categories that could be more harmful if they get out, data that could affect the operations of the car, or avionics that could cause a plane to crash. Those are important things to protect even if they're not secret-sauce stuff.”

As a former General Counsel of the US Department of Homeland Security and a former Chief of the Criminal Division at the US Attorney’s Office in Washington, DC, Bunnell brings critical senior government experience advising on high-stakes criminal, civil, and regulatory enforcement matters.
