Sam Kaplan Comments on Key Privacy and Cybersecurity Developments of 2020

December 22, 2020

Sam Kaplan, special counsel in Wiley’s Privacy, Cyber & Data Governance Practice, was quoted in a December 21 Law360 article about the biggest privacy and cybersecurity developments of 2020.

Those developments included the creation – as part of the FY2021 National Defense Authorization Act – of a national cyber director position within the office of the President, according to the article. The person selected for that role would be subject to Senate confirmation and would direct and coordinate federal cybersecurity policies.

“There’s a lot of duplication across federal agencies that are studying problems from different angles and aren’t necessarily coordinating or having a coherent policy on cyber issues, so the hope is that the national cyber director will help bring some unity and continuity to those work streams and how these agencies approach cyber issues,” said Mr. Kaplan, who previously served as Assistant Secretary for Cyber, Infrastructure, Risk and Resilience Policy at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
