Steven Puiszis – a Chicago-based partner at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP who serves as the firm's General Counsel, Privacy, Security and Compliance – was featured in a Law360 article titled "Having a Chief Privacy Officer Reassures Your Firm's Clients." The article describes how clients increasingly recognize law firms as "threat vectors" for cyber attackers seeking access to their personal data, and – in response – are demanding a greater degree of information privacy and security assurances. With this demand, many firms are finding that having a lawyer as chief privacy officer is "good for risk management and also good for their brand."
