KANSAS CITY, Mo., Feb. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Husch Blackwell is pleased to announce that David M. Stauss will join the firm as a partner in its Denver office. Stauss will serve as the co-leader of the firm’s Data Security & Privacy team, in addition to representing manufacturing and technology clients in commercial litigation and product liability cases.
Stauss routinely advises clients in preparing for and responding to data breaches and data security incidents. He works proactively with clients to draft incident response plans and address the legal strategic components of ‘war-game’ scenarios that test an organization’s ability to respond to cyberattacks. He has also counseled numerous clients in responding to data breaches, including managing multi-state breach notifications, providing employee training, appearing before regulators, handling disputes arising from cybersecurity issues, and recovering funds lost in illegal wire fraud phishing schemes
“Data security and privacy law is a quickly evolving area of great concern to our clients,” said Joseph Orlet, the head of Husch Blackwell’s Technology, Manufacturing & Transportation industry team. “David brings to our team a deep engagement with the subject matter and demonstrated excellence in handling these matters for clients, both proactively and in response to crisis.”
Stauss is accredited by the International Association of Privacy Professionals as a Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US) and as a Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT), and in 2018 he assisted in drafting Colorado’s cybersecurity legislation, serving as the outside subject-matter expert for the Colorado Attorney General’s office. In 2018, ColoradoBIZmagazine named Stauss among its Top 25 Most Influential Young Professionals.
Stauss is a frequent author and speaker on privacy and cybersecurity and has been quoted in numerous publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Cybersecurity Law Report, Law360, Law Week Colorado, Denver Business Journal, and Law Technology News. He has also co-authored Colorado Privacy & Cybersecurity Handbook, the definitive summary of Colorado’s privacy and cybersecurity statutes, regulations, and case law.
