The Howard Tech Council HACKIT affinity group welcomes April Doss, of Saul Ewing and the former Associate General Counsel for Intelligence Law at the National Security Agency (NSA).
The cybersecurity legal landscape continues to evolve. Here are just a few of the forces shaping this year: the cybersecurity goals of the new administration, including the cybersecurity council and a draft Executive Order; new state-level cybersecurity regulations, like the ones that are expected to be issued in New York, tightening the security requirements for banks, insurance companies, and other financial services sector businesses that are licensed in New York; and the ways in which the new nominee for the Supreme Court could help shape the future of the law on surveillance, privacy, cell phone tracking, and other cases. April Doss, former Associate General Counsel at NSA and a partner and chair of the Cybersecurity and Privacy practice group at Saul Ewing, will host an interactive discussion on the latest legal, regulatory, and policy shifts on the cybersecurity horizon.
Guest Speaker, April Doss- Saul Ewing
As the former Associate General Counsel for Intelligence Law at the National Security Agency (NSA), April Doss offers clients significant insight into some of the most highly regulated activities in the United States intelligence community. In this role, she gained significant experience with legal issues relating to big data, including privacy and compliance programs, particularly within the telecommunications, technology, and defense sectors of the economy. April advises clients on regulatory and corporate ethics and compliance best practices. She also provides a wide range of legal services to intelligence, defense, and homeland security sector clients who are engaged in cleared conversations with the vast network of federal agencies that govern and impact those arenas. Her experience as in-house counsel to a private college allows her to apply her cybersecurity perspective to the needs of higher education sector clients.
April’s substantial experience makes her well-qualified to provide practical, hands-on legal advice that takes into account the real-world implementation challenges of data privacy and cybersecurity programs. Over the course of her career at the NSA, April managed operations; oversaw a complex, multi-site compliance program; and she served as part of the senior management team for NSA’s new technology development. Based on her many years of experience as in-house counsel, she understands the need for legal advice to be specifically tailored to the budgetary, operational, and cultural realities of each institution and client that she serves. This practical approach, coupled with her deep understanding of technology, has earned her a reputation as a lawyer who “gets it” – whose advice translates easily from advising corporate boards and officers on strategic and reputational risk, to advising business units on the cybersecurity and privacy risks associated with their operations.
