News: Phil Lowry Presides as Legal Chair of Cybershield's Legal Table Top Exercise
// Jan 30, 2017
C&J shareholder Phillip Lowry, an officer and lawyer in the Utah National Guard, is the lead attorney for the 2017 National Guard Bureau Cybershield Exercise. Cybershield is a war game in which simulated attacks are responded to by National Guard assets. These attacks implicate regulations at the state and federal level, along with potential civil liability. This is in addition to the need to differentiate the state and federal response to the attacks, which may impact both private and government networks.
Recently Mr. Lowry presided as a legal chair of the Cybershield’s Legal Table Top Exercise. Among the 100 in attendance were the adjutants general (cabinet level military leaders) of several states, along with senior leadership from the Army Cybercommand, US Cybercommand, and two dozen states’ National Guards. Pressing legal issues were discussed with Mr. Lowry’s guidance.
Mr. Lowry is a member of the firm’s Commercial Litigation and Government sections. He holds a technical certification as a CompTia Security+ Professional, and regularly advises on cyberdata privacy and security issues.
