Logan M. Parker
Logan M. Parker works hand-in-hand with Data Protection Officers, Chief Privacy Officers, and General Counsels to mitigate privacy and cyber risks by assessing, drafting, and implementing various policies and procedures related to data subject rights, data classification and de-identification, and risk assessments.
He is passionate about privacy and cybersecurity and routinely advises clients on securing and protecting data, hardening IT systems, transitioning business activities from paper to electronic, and compliance with domestic and international data privacy frameworks. Logan has traveled extensively advising clients on domestic and international data protection laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and assisting them with compliance implementation initiatives related to these regulatory frameworks.
Logan’s prior background working in-house and with a big four consulting firm allows him to approach legal issues in a fresh and holistic manner for clients. Logan clearly sees a client’s end goal and knows what steps need to occur in order to help a client get from Point A to Point B. His ability to understand the full lifecycle of a privacy and cybersecurity issue, incident, or a compliance engagement allows Logan to cater his legal advice to each individual client.
The nature of the work that Logan does for cybersecurity clients is highly sensitive and the stakes are high. When a data security incident occurs, Logan operates as breach counsel, navigating clients through a wide variety of cyberattacks including business email compromises, ransomware attacks, wire frauds, and unauthorized disclosures of personal information. Logan oversees forensic investigations to determine the scope and impact of the incident, whether personal information was impacted, and if notification obligations to individuals or state and federal regulators are triggered.
Global businesses rely on Logan due to his extensive knowledge and attention to detail regarding international privacy regulations, cross-border data transfers, and IT contract development. Logan monitors the changing regulatory landscape and helps clients maintain compliance with state, federal, and international privacy rules and regulations.
Logan is a Certified Informational Privacy Professional (CIPP/US) and is Certified in Healthcare Compliance (CHC).
