Data Security Attorney, ZwillGen PLLC, hybrid in DC, New York, San Francisco or Chicago
The law firm specializing in internet and technology is looking for 2 lawyers with at least 4 years of experience in data security. In our specialized practice, the clientele (from cutting-edge startups to tech titans and more) is much more interesting than at BigLaw, and the work/life balance and cultural differences are off the charts.
Detailed job description:
ZwillGen is an internet and technology law firm with a multitude of high-tech clients ranging from early-stage start-ups to household names in the tech industry and more. We are looking for a lawyer with at least 4 years of data security experience to join our team. Versatile attorneys who can handle this work and expertly advise clients in one or more related areas of our practice (e.g., privacy, internet law, transactions, gaming, marketing, e-commerce and consumer protection) are also welcome and encouraged to apply. .
The position requires a highly motivated and forward-thinking individual who can work as part of a team in a fast-paced legal environment. Although we have won national accolades (e.g. recent Law360 Practice of the Year Groups for Privacy and Consumer Protection), we are not BigLaw: we want lawyers who share our creative approach efficient and team-oriented to meet client needs, and who can serve as a valued strategic advisor – not just billing for hours. Internal experience is valued; part-time schedules can be tailored for the right candidate; more experienced lawyers are valued and welcome.
The ideal candidate possesses the following:
- Knowledge of data security laws and industry requirements, such as PCI-DSS.
- Familiarity with other common security frameworks, such as CIS 20, NIST CSF and ISO 27001/27002.
- Ability to manage all aspects of incident response.
- Experience in drafting and negotiating data security clauses in contracts.
- Experience in drafting and reviewing information security policies and governance documents.
- Mastery of technology is relevant to all of the above.
Confidentiality, data protection and general transactional skills are also helpful.
This position is available for hybrid or full office work in our DC, New York, San Francisco or Chicago desks. Applicants must be banned in the jurisdiction in which they will be working.
Candidates should write and communicate well, be able to think strategically and assess risk, and be comfortable working under tight deadlines that clients sometimes impose. Candidates must demonstrate their ability to manage projects independently, interact with clients and work effectively as part of a team.
- Good sense of humor
- Solid knowledge of pop culture
