Jay Kramer is a partner in the New York office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice. Jay has extensive operational experience in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Cyber Division, and has held leadership positions in the FBI’s offices in both Washington, D.C. and New York. As a Special Counsel for the FBI in its Office of General Counsel (OGC), Jay was a founding member of its Cyber Law Unit where he helped investigative teams tackle complex issues of law and policy nationwide. Upon his return to the FBI’s New York office, Jay led its primary criminal cyber intrusion squad, and helped develop and staff its new Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT). Jay brings to the firm a comprehensive understanding of the ever-shifting cyber threat landscape, as well as significant experience in formulating an effective response to a host of data breach and cyber intrusion incidents.

Serving as long time Counsel at the FBI, Jay has developed executive training programs on federal law and policy, and on the acquisition and use of digital evidence and electronic data. A frequent speaker on cybersecurity, information sharing, and public-private partnerships, Jay has served on several interagency working groups, most recently as the FBI representative to the multi-agency effort to create a National Cyber Incident Response Plan (NCIRP). The NCIRP was adopted on January 18, 2017, and now serves as the national framework for a whole-of-nation approach to cybersecurity.
