MARC partner Asaad K. Siddiqi served as a special co-editor of a series of articles on cyber-security in the December 2016 issue of New Jersey Lawyer, the New Jersey State Bar Association’s bi-monthly magazine.
“With the rapidly changing legal landscape when it comes to technology and its impact, it’s crucial for attorneys to remain up to date. This timely collection of articles assists attorneys in guiding clients large and small,” Asaad said.
The articles by various authors include suggestions for protecting trade secrets using the New Jersey Trade Secret Act and the Defend Trade Secrets Act, cyber risks posed by mobile health apps, an analysis of whether cyber-risk assessments may become discoverable in civil litigation following a data breach, ransomware attacks and risks of organizational liability for not being prepared, advice to clients responding to data breaches, guidance to businesses about staying current on cyber-security best practices, and cyber-insurance and related coverage issues.
Asaad concentrates on commercial litigation, corporate matters, criminal defense, employment & labor issues, federal and state investigations/compliance, insurance/indemnification and professional misconduct/attorney ethics.
