National Law Journal Names Miriam Wugmeister 2016 Cybersecurity Trailblazer

20 Nov 2016

The National Law Journal has named Miriam Wugmeister to its 2016 lists of Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Trailblazers. Now in its second year, the list recognizes 50 professionals who have made significant contributions to the fields of cybersecurity and data privacy.

NLJ Vice President Kenneth A. Gary remarked that “while those recognized impact the practice of law in different ways, a common thread ties them together: each has shown a deep passion and perseverance in pursuit of their mission, having achieved remarkable successes along the way.” 

Miriam was singled out for her work in transforming traditional industrial companies into digital companies amidst the rapid proliferation of the Internet of Things. 

“On the consumer side, you want your fridge to talk to the store so you never run out of milk,” Miriam tells NLJ. “But in the industrial space, if you make airplanes or fabrics that work in defense to track soldiers, there are ramifications for getting it wrong. The proper use of information in industrial IoT is profound.”
