Cameron F. Kerry Named Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Trailblazer

Sidley is delighted to announce that The National Law Journal named Boston and Washington, D.C. senior counsel Cameron F. Kerry to its third annual “Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Trailblazers” special supplement.

Cameron was recognized for his work in both private practice and his government service. In recognition of his time at Sidley, the supplement underscored his leadership on transnational information sharing and cooperation reflected in his report for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce titled, “Transatlantic Cybersecurity: Forging a United Response to Universal Threats.” Recognizing his government service, the supplement highlighted his spearheading the 2013 Cybersecurity Executive Order that led to the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework, along with his leading the work on the development and implementation of the White House blueprint on consumer privacy.

The annual “Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Trailblazers” supplement profiles those individuals who have “helped make a difference in the fight against criminal cyber activity and toward adding much-needed layers of data security in an increasingly digital world of commerce.” Out of the hundreds of nominations made to The National Law Journal, only 25 individuals were recognized. Cameron is the third member of Sidley’s highly regarded global Privacy and Data Security practice recognized in the supplement, joining Edward R. McNicholas and Alan Charles Raul who were recognized in 2016.
