US: Hogan Lovells hire brings cybersecurity antitrust skills

 |  October 9, 2017

Commercial Dispute Resolution’s website has reported the arrival of Edith Ramirez at Hogan Lovells, bringing cybersecurity skills to that firm’s practice alongside antitrust experience. Recent events, such as the Deloitte and Equifax data breaches, suggest such hires are sound investments.

Marcy Wilder, head of Hogan Lovells’ privacy and cybersecurity practice explains why, “Edith guided the FTC through a period of significant activity in the areas of cybersecurity and consumer privacy,” said Wilder.

In a statement, Wilder said Ramirez was “uniquely qualified to provide leadership on data protection and cybersecurity matters”. While at the FTC, Ramirez conferred regularly with corporate leaders and key policy-makers and joined discussions with antitrust enforcers and privacy and data protection regulators from all over the world.

Ramirez also participated in negotiations to create a new data transfer regime – the so-called Privacy Shield – and mechanisms for trans-Atlantic data sharing between the US and the European Union.
