Group Chair, Digital Assets and Data Management

Ted Kobus stands at the forefront of cyber protection -- no small role in an era defined by crippling data breaches and evolving threats to digital assets.

He knows the most proactive regulators involved in this space and interacts with them regularly. Ted has led the defense to hundreds of regulatory investigations, including those brought by the Attorney General Multi-State, Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights, Departments of Insurance, SEC and FTC. In the healthcare space, Ted has defended more than 200 OCR investigations and has negotiated more privacy/security-related resolution agreements than any other lawyer.
