Kim Peretti Repeats as a Cybersecurity “Top Lawyer” in Washingtonian Magazine

Kim Peretti, partner and co-leader of Alston & Bird’s Cybersecurity Preparedness & Response and National Security & Digital Crimes teams, has been named a 2018 “Top Lawyer” for cybersecurity by Washingtonian magazine, the second year in a row she has earned this distinction.

Peretti has nearly 20 years of experience as an information security professional and lawyer in a career that has included positions as director of PwC’s cyber forensic services group and senior litigator in the U.S. Department of Justice’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section.

A frequent speaker and writer on cybersecurity, Peretti most recently spoke on “Hot Topics in Cyber-Law 2019” at the 2019 RSA Conference. Recent articles she has written or co-written include “Retailers Beware: Navigating Through Assessments and Appeals from the Card Brands,” “Working with the Government After a Breach,” and “Carpenter Ruling May Be Turning Point in Digital Data Privacy.”

The Washingtonian is a monthly magazine distributed in the Washington, D.C. area. Its Top Lawyer feature, which published in December 2018, is based on a combination of peer review and independent research and reporting.
