Former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe was tapped by Hunton Andrews Kurth to be an advisor the Centre for Information Policy Leadership, the firm’s global privacy and cybersecurity think tank.
McAuliffe will provide strategic counsel to CIPL, the firm, and clients with a particular focus on cybersecurity and privacy issues given his work and recognition in those fields during his governorship,” Hunton Andrews Kurth said. McAuliffe will help shape strategic privacy and data security policy initiatives to help companies address and mitigate cyber and privacy risks.
“Gov. McAuliffe brings a depth of understanding of global business, the challenges and opportunities facing it, and emerging issues related to cybersecurity and privacy matters that is hard to match,” said Wally Martinez, managing partner of Hunton Andrews Kurth. “His business acumen, coupled with his public service experience, will be very valuable for Hunton, the Centre for Information Policy Leadership, and our clients.”
