Adam Kardash, head of Osler’s national Privacy and Data Management Practice Group, has been named to The National Law Journal’s (NLJ) second annual list of Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Trailblazers. As an honouree, his profile is featured in a special supplement created by NLJ as one of the legal practitioners who has “helped make a difference in the fight against criminal cyberactivity and towards adding much needed layers of data security in an increasingly digital world of commerce.”
The profile highlights Adam’s path to working in cybersecurity and privacy, his groundbreaking accomplishments and his insights on what the future holds for cybersecurity and privacy. In the article, Adam discusses his three-pronged approach to supporting clients, which includes a legal practice, a consulting practice, under AccessPrivacy and a thought-leadership forum under AccessPrivacy, which offers two subscription-based websites, workshops, and a monthly call on privacy that enables more than 1,500 subscriber organizations to stay current on emerging issues and developments in the Canadian data arena.
“It became clear very early in the privacy practice that clients needed the most assistance in operationalizing the legal and regulatory related advice,” says Adam. “So the AccessPrivacy information service and consulting arm was developed specifically to address that need.”
