Day Pitney LLP is pleased to announce that Andrew Riddles, a partner in the firm's Intellectual Property and Technology group, has been awarded a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification by the International Information System Security Certification Consortium (ISC)², an international cybersecurity and IT security professional organization.
CISSP certification recognizes mastery of an international standard for information security professionals and their understanding of the 8 domains of the (ISC)² Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) in forming security policies, standards and procedures. It has been adopted as a baseline for the U.S. National Security Agency's Information System Security Engineering Professional program. The achievement of CISSP certification is not a certification of specialization in a field of law, but acknowledges the certificate holder's qualifications as a cybersecurity and IT security professional.
"Arguably, cyber security is one of the biggest threats facing the well-being and financial security of individuals, companies and governments across the globe. When combined with his 25 years of experience practicing intellectual property law, the CISSP certification, which recognizes Andrew's knowledge in the field of information security, uniquely positions Andrew to advise an ever-expanding base of technology companies who are developing and deploying cutting-edge technologies to address cybersecurity risks," said Rick Harris, co-chair of Day Pitney's Cybersecurity and Data Protection practice group. "Importantly, for Day Pitney's Cybersecurity and Data Protection practice group, Andrew's achievement of the CISSP certification further enhances the credentials and capabilities of our interdisciplinary team of lawyers and better positions us to serve the evolving needs of our clients."
Riddles has over 25 years of experience in virtually all aspects of intellectual property and technology law. He counsels clients on a wide range of cutting-edge cybersecurity, privacy, IoT, risk mitigation and intellectual property issues. Riddles works with clients to develop strategies to protect their intellectual property assets, including advising companies on developing and distributing new privacy and cybersecurity technologies. He also represents parties as negotiation counsel in the structuring of complex multi-party technology joint ventures and technology-sharing arrangements.
Riddles sits in the firm's New York City office at 7 Times Square and can be reached on (212) 297-5800.
