Cyber Law & Data Privacy
Since 2005, nearly 8,000 data breaches have occurred in the U.S., totaling $6.53 million and the problem continues to increase with online attacks increasing by 28 percent globally year-over-year in third-quarter 2022. Cybersecurity lawyer jobs have emerged to protect organizations in matters such as domain disputes, privacy concerns, trade secrets, copyright violations, and patent enforcement. But this fast-growing specialization presents challenges for anyone looking to fill cyber lawyer jobs, which is why you want a proven firm like Atticus Recruiting in your corner.
Why Atticus Recruiting’s Process is Superior
The legal recruiting field is full of firms whose employees aren’t actually licensed lawyers and who lack both the proper training and requisite experience to evaluate what’s needed in a particular position. In a rapidly developing area such as cyber law, this can prove problematic, resulting in wasted time, expended effort, and unnecessary risk.
When filling cybersecurity attorney jobs, we work differently here at Atticus Recruiting. We understand that these positions require specialized degrees, certificates, training, and experience. What’s acceptable for a firm looking to fill a position with litigation or corporate law simply won’t do when it comes to cyber attorney jobs or data protection lawyer jobs. That’s why our most experienced partners manage this highly specialized practice area.
As any established attorney understands, excelling in your area of practice is only part of your success. You must also know the limits of your knowledge and be able to reach out to third parties that can provide additional professional perspective. With decades of combined legal and recruiting between them, the principals of Atticus Recruiting have the required expertise and extensive network to help your organization find ideal legal talent.
What Do We Expect from You?
Cyber law is an incredibly diverse field, and attorney’s responsibilities may vary widely depending on their area of practice. A professional focus on intellectual property law, including copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, privacy, settlement issues, domain disputes, and data retention law is vital. Depending on whether or not a lawyer ends up representing a corporation, charitable organization, or governmental entity, his or her responsibilities may include the following:
- Advising on the legal ramifications of data breaches
- Drafting legal documentation regarding licensing, outsourcing, copyright, software development, content licensing, and/or trademark issues
- Implementing the legal requirements of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act
- Advising as to the proper implementation of data-privacy safeguards
- Providing expert counsel regarding the protection of domestic and/or foreign intelligence for use in legal and national security contexts
- Providing expert counsel regarding the protection of sensitive financial, biometric, classified, business, and trade-secret information
Additionally, cyber law practitioners should possess general qualifications such as an ability to remain up to date on developing legal matters, strong self-motivation, and an ability to multi-task in fast-paced environments.
