Brandy Worden works at the intersection of law and technology. As a CIPP/US, CIPP/E, and Harvard- certified cyber risk management professional, she counsels clients on both domestic and international cybersecurity, privacy and insurance coverage issues. As a prolific thought leader in the industry, Brandy has been featured in Bloomberg and the Financial Times.
Brandy has counseled companies on a comprehensive number of cybersecurity and privacy issues. In this space, Brandy has worked with companies to help develop resilience to cybersecurity and privacy incidents by developing privacy corporate governance structures, drafting internal and consumer facing policies, navigating cross-border privacy issues, drafting cybersecurity and privacy contract language, conducting incident response planning, and counseling on other compliance issues.
When cybersecurity and privacy incidents arise, Brandy has supported companies in the aftermath. This has included serving as a “breach coach” to coordinate and counsel on effective data breach response, including investigation, notification, remediation, and vendor and regulator interface. Brandy draws on her experiences as a law clerk for heavyweight regulators like the Federal Trade Commission and U.S. Attorney’s Office to representing clients in regulator investigations and in litigation.
Brandy pairs this deep understanding of cybersecurity and privacy with her many years as an insurance coverage lawyer to represent insurance clients on cyber risk coverage issues. In addition to cyber risk, Brandy represents insurance carriers in property, energy and infrastructure industry claims (including damages exceeding $700M) and litigation in state and federal court throughout the U.S. including coverage analysis and subrogation, dispute resolution, strategic advice and prepping for trial.
