Wiley’s Megan Brown and Lyn Brown to Speak at RSA Cybersecurity Conference

May 2, 2024

Washington, DC Megan L. Brown, co-chair of Wiley’s Privacy, Cyber & Data Governance Practice, and Jacqueline F. “Lyn” Brown, of counsel in the practice, will present at this week’s RSA Conference (RSAC) in San Francisco – one of the world’s leading cybersecurity conferences. They will speak on a May 6 panel about lessons learned from cyberattacks that disrupted the global supply chain last summer.

The discussion will also focus on complications associated with investigating and responding to multi-cloud environment compromises, and will explore implications for data security, data governance, contracting, communications, cyber incident reporting, and potential legal exposure.

Megan Brown and Lyn Brown will be joined on the panel by Jennifer Burnside, Practice Leader for Cyber Crisis Communications at Mandiant, and Erin Joe, Cybersecurity Executive at Google Cloud.

“This important conversation will focus on how to strengthen resiliency as businesses throughout the supply chain face increasingly sophisticated cyber threats,” Megan Brown said. “We look forward to connecting with some of the greatest innovators in this sector as part of the world-renowned RSA Conference.”

RSAC is a four-day conference that brings together thousands of professionals, practitioners, vendors, and associations to discuss issues covering the entire spectrum of cybersecurity. Many of the world’s top cybersecurity, government, and business leaders converge at the annual event to formulate best strategies to address current and future cyber risks.

Megan Brown has represented major companies and trade associations on virtually every federal cyber initiative for the past 15 years. She develops compliance and advocacy strategies and helps clients manage incidents, including ransomware attacks, and respond to data breach investigations. She has testified before the U.S. Senate and serves on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Cybersecurity Leadership Council. She also serves as Associate Director for Cybersecurity at George Mason law school’s National Security Institute, and recently launched the Start Here podcast series in partnership with American University’s Khan Cyber and Economic Security Institute and global cybersecurity company CrowdStrike.

Lyn Brown, a former senior national security and cyber attorney at the FBI, advises clients on a range of cybersecurity and national security issues. She helps clients prepare for and respond to cyberattacks, including multimillion-dollar ransomware attacks, business email compromises, and other information security incidents or data breaches. She previously served as Chief of the FBI’s Cyber Law Unit (Acting), supervising the provision of legal advice in FBI cyber intrusion investigations. She also served as counsel to the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force, which coordinates whole-of-government campaigns to protect the U.S. and its allies from cyber attacks.

Wiley’s Privacy, Cyber & Data Governance Practice assists clients with a full spectrum of issues at the federal, state, and international levels, from compliance to transactional diligence to investigations, enforcement, and litigation. The team’s cutting-edge experience spans numerous sectors, including technology, telecommunications, health care, government contracting, and financial services.
