Lewis Brisbois Expands Client Services with New CISO

Los Angeles, California (February 22, 2018) – Lewis Brisbois is pleased to announce that Frank Gillman has been named the firm’s new Chief Information Security Officer. In his new role, Mr. Gillman will work closely with Lewis Brisbois’ Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice to provide a suite of client services. 

Mr. Gillman has more than 30 years of technology experience in the legal field, including 20 years in the Chief Information Officer/Chief Technology Officer role for three notable AmLaw 200 firms, including Lewis Brisbois. He has led and implemented first-to-market initiatives regarding a number of legal technology solutions during his various tenures in the infrastructure, telecommunications, mobility, and data security fields.

“We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Frank in providing client services. With his operational experience and expertise, we are adding tremendous value to a variety of client engagements to better secure their networks and better prepare them to respond to data security incidents,” said Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Chair Sean Hoar.

As a part of the data privacy and cybersecurity team, Mr. Gillman now provides clients with security control assessments mapped to a number of information security frameworks, incident response planning, tabletop exercises, executive training in network security awareness, and information security policy and procedure development.

These services will continue to be provided under attorney-client privilege, but with the added value of Mr. Gillman’s 30-plus years of operational information technology experience.

"I'm excited about the opportunity to evolve the traditional CISO role within a law firm to this expanded scope," Mr. Gillman said. "What makes it doubly so is to be able to do it alongside some of the most talented lawyers in the data privacy and cybersecurity fields. Clients already recognize the genuine value of engaging Lewis Brisbois on these matters. This gives us the opportunity to truly differentiate ourselves in the marketplace by further increasing the value of those services."
