Jim Harvey is a partner in the Technology & Privacy Group and co-chairs Alston & Bird’s Privacy, Cyber & Data Strategy Team.
Jim’s practice involves board-level and enterprise-wide strategic issues at the intersection of cybersecurity, privacy, global data rights and usage, and technology. Jim was one of the first lawyers to focus on the criticality of privacy and data management issues for global corporations. As a result, Jim established both the Privacy & Data Security task force and the Cybersecurity Preparedness & Response Team, well before other firms realized these issues faced their clients. Jim’s experience includes not only handling some of the largest breaches on record but also includes everything from data-related regulatory actions and litigation, the intricacies of the AdTech ecosystem, preparing companies and their boards for cybersecurity risks, and leveraging and monetizing personal and corporate data around the globe.
