Joe Hancock has been appointed as cyber-security lead at law firm Mishcon de Reya.
An industry expert in cyber-security and risk management, Hancock will be involved in offering non-legal services to help clients manage the cyber-risk – from preventative measures through to post breach action. He will also help organisations develop and optimise their investments in cyber-risk management and protect their businesses and reputations.
“We have long recognised that our clients' needs go beyond traditional legal advice – and this is particularly true in relation to issues surrounding digital security. Joe's appointment is in direct response to client demand. His expertise sits comfortably alongside many of our practice areas, notably the work undertaken by our fraud teams, which increasingly involves digital-related factors. Joe can offer insight into preventative measures to mitigate the risks of breaches, as well as advice on action to be taken once a breach has occurred. His experience allows us to offer a valuable additional service to our clients, and we are excited to welcome him to the team,” said Kasra Nouroozi, head of dispute resolution at Mishcon de Reya.
