SC Media: Women in Security—PowerPlayers

July 01, 2019

SC Media recognized partner Lisa Monaco as a “Power Player” in their special “Women in Security” issue. Known for her role as counterterrorism advisor to President Obama and as the former assistant attorney general for national security in the Justice Department, Monaco has made cybersecurity a focus throughout her career.

During her time in the White House, Monaco stressed that US would need to be “nimbler and quicker on the draw” in order to combat nation-state cyber-attacks. As the chair for the Homeland Security Principals Committee, she helped develop and coordinate policy and response to cyber threats, terror attacks and other crises.

“Her latest gig as a partner with O’Melveny, heading the Data Security and Privacy group with partner Steve Bunnell, leverages her 15 years of experience at Justice and stint in the Obama administration to guide clients through security-related sensitive governance, legal, regulatory and policy concerns,” the authors write.
