Michael Egan


Data is the key value driver and differentiator for companies worldwide. I’m passionate about helping clients achieve the best outcomes in the rapidly developing regulatory environment of data privacy and data security law.

Michael has focused on cyber/data/privacy issues in the areas of technology, innovation, retail and consumer solutions, life sciences, manufacturing, financial services, and healthcare since 2007. He advises clients on all legal aspects of global privacy and data protection, data security, data breach, information technology, and related restrictions on data collection and transfer. He has represented companies before numerous government agencies and bodies, including the US Federal Trade Commission, the US Department of Justice, and the US Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as data protection authorities around the world, regarding disclosure of data security compliance issues, internal investigation findings, remediation measures and settlement terms.
