LOS ANGELES—Michael A. Gold, co-chair of the Cybersecurity & Privacy Group at Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP (JMBM), was named by the Daily Journal as one of California’s Top 20 Cyber – Artificial Intelligence lawyers.
In the Daily Journal’s profile, Gold discussed the disconnect that may occur between technology staff and corporate executives in developing and implementing cybersecurity measures within an organization. Describing his role in bridging the divide, Gold explained: “I develop a presentation to the ultimate business decision makers that addresses the organization’s cyber threats. Then I’ll analyze the urgency and needs. At that point, we talk about options.”
JMBM’s Cybersecurity & Privacy Group counsels businesses in a full range of cybersecurity matters, including data breach responses and investigations, crisis management, development of computer-based information retention systems, forensic investigations of computer systems, and computer and internet privacy matters.
“Michael’s skills in the cybersecurity arena have been honed over many years, and are a direct response to the growing volume and complexity of cybersecurity issues that threaten our clients,” said Bruce Jeffer, Managing Partner of Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP. “Our clients appreciate the knowledgeable and critical services he provides, particularly in crisis situations.”
A frequent writer and speaker on cybersecurity law issues, Gold is co-author of the Cybersecurity Lawyer Forum, a blog focused on cybersecurity issues for middle market companies. He was recently recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal as a “Leader in Law” for cybersecurity law.
“I am honored to be included in the Daily Journal’s list of very impressive cyber and AI lawyers,” said Gold. “All of us are fortunate to be involved in an area where the law is developing at a rapid pace and the demand for our services is strong. I am also fortunate to have a great team of lawyers supporting me at JMBM.”
