experience in the security space that is critical for the cybersecurity
work he is handling for our clients. Not many lawyers achieve this
certification which is the industry-standard baseline certification for
information security professionals. Having our team members achieve
certifications like this should provide our clients with an extra level
of confidence in the already excellent privacy and cybersecurity
services that Dorsey offers,” says Jamie Nafziger, Chair of Dorsey’s
Cybersecurity, Privacy and Social Media practice group.

security program development, regulatory compliance, data breaches and
