Andrew Serwin, '95, Named One of the Most Influential People in Security
SAN DIEGO (December 17, 2009)—University of San Diego School of Law alumus Andrew Serwin, '95 (cum laude), has been recognized in the December issue of Security Magazine as one of the "Most Influential People in Security." Serwin is the founding chair of the Privacy, Security & Information Management Practice and is a partner in the San Diego office of Foley & Lardner LLP.
The only attorney at a law firm to be recognized as a security industry thought leader and pioneer by the publication, Serwin has secured his place on a prestigious list of "most influential" honorees. Past recipients include: former CIA and FBI Director and current Chairman of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, the Honorable William Webster; State of Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna; John E. McClurg, vice president and chief security officer, Honeywell’s Global Security Organization; the Honorable Michael Chertoff, Third Circuit Court of Appeals judge and former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security; Jim Hutton, chief security officer and director of global security, Procter & Gamble Company; and Senator Joe Lieberman.
In the Security Magazine article, Serwin reflects on how legal issues surrounding information security and privacy at businesses have grown from just stopping "the one-off hacker who sought to crack a system" to "state-sponsored cyberterrorism," which means companies and governments must be increasingly vigilant against coordinated attacks.
