Portland, Ore. (April 16, 2021) - Portland Partner and Chair of Lewis Brisbois’ Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice Sean B. Hoar has been named by Cybersecurity Docket to the 2021 “Incident Response 40” list, which features “the 40 best data breach response lawyers in the business.”

Cybersecurity Docket is a respected online news platform covering the rapidly growing fields of cybersecurity, data breach, and incident response. This is the fourth year that Mr. Hoar has appeared on this list, which is based on nominations, extensive research, and input from senior lawyers and other professionals in the field. According to Cybersecurity Docket’s press release, the attorneys on the Incident Response 40 list, who represent several of the top law firms worldwide, “have established themselves as the ‘first call’ for companies hit with a cyber attack or other data security incident.”

Cybersecurity Docket Editor Bruce Carton announced the names on the 2021 Incident Response 40 list at the Incident Response Forum Masterclass 2021, a virtual event that Mr. Hoar participated in earlier this month. In Cybersecurity Docket’s press release, Mr. Carton noted, “Our Incident Response 40 list celebrates the ‘best of the best’ — the 40 lawyers in this field who are setting the standard.”

As a former cyber attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice, Mr. Hoar has extensive experience managing responses to digital crises as well as effectively marshaling resources to contain and remediate information security incidents. He is a frequent speaker and commentator on cybersecurity issues in the law and regularly contributes to Lewis Brisbois’ Digital Insights blog.
