Frost Brown Todd (FBT) Louisville Member Stephen E. Embry was recently appointed chair of the newly formed Substantive Law Section on Data Breach, Privacy and Cyber Insurance of the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel (FDCC).
“I am happy that the FDCC has created this section and am honored to be its first chair. Cyber insurance, data breach and privacy issues are multiplying at a dizzying pace and we hope that this section can be a valuable resource to Federation members to keep up with – and even ahead of – the developments,” says Embry.
Embry, a national litigator with nearly 40 years of experience in developing solutions to complex litigation and corporate problems, frequently handles consumer class action and mass tort litigation cases. He previously served as chair of FBT’s Mass Tort Litigation practice group.
