San Diego Daily Transcript

Andrew Serwin, co-chair of the firm’s Global Privacy and Data Security Practice Group, was quoted regarding the role of cybersecurity collaboration in the strengthening of San Diego's cyber-infrastructure in the article, “SD leads charge for cybersecurity collaboration,” published in San Diego Daily Transcript on October 27, 2014.

[A] key partner in this collaboration is law enforcement, although actually prosecuting cybercrimes is difficult, given the ease with which perpetrators can hide their identity and goals.

Serwin said this amplifies the need for compromised companies to report attacks, and then receive appropriate advice.

“I think we’ve got to get to a place where rather than, in essence, blaming the victim, we try to actually provide resources to help companies be proactive and not lay the same kind of stigma we see a lot of times in these cases,” he said. “And I think the CCOE can offer a path forward to do that.”
