Adam Cohen provides a unique blend of technical and legal expertise. While he is certified as a professional in information systems security (CISSP), cloud security (CCSP) and ethical hacking (CEH), Adam is also a former litigator who for more than 20 years has advised clients on the intersection of technology and law at the business enterprise. His work encompasses the spectrum of proactive and reactive disciplines involved in data governance, compliance, and security, including areas such as cyber security, digital forensics and electronic discovery, data privacy, information governance, and records management.
Typically, Mr. Cohen’s engagements are not public, but rather highly confidential, attorney-client privileged consulting. However, his career highlights include being appointed by former U.S. District Court Judge Hon. Shira Scheindlin to serve as neutral eDiscovery expert in Floyd et al. v. City of New York et al. (the NYPD “stop and frisk” case), as well as leading forensic technology teams in Major League Baseball’s investigation, by former Senator George Mitchell, of performance enhancing drug use.
As a litigator, Mr. Cohen was a partner at one of the world’s top law firms, where he represented global business enterprises in complex litigation involving technology issues, primarily intellectual property disputes. In 2006, with the electronic discovery industry poised for rapid growth triggered by amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, he left law practice for technology consulting.
