NEWPORT, R.I. —The Pell Center today announced the addition of Ellen Marie Giblin to its team of cybersecurity professionals. Giblin, who is Counsel in the Boston office of the national law firm, Locke Lord LLP, is a recognized expert on global privacy and data protection as well as cyber breach response. She will be a Cybersecurity Leadership adjunct fellow at the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy.
“Ellen Giblin brings a wealth of experience and expertise on the legal and risk management aspects of cybersecurity to the Pell Center,” said Jim Ludes, Pell Center Executive Director. “Over the course of her career she has demonstrated not just mastery of the law and information governance, but also the persuasive use of social media to build a community of experts. We’re delighted to work with her.”
Senior Fellow for Cyber Leadership Francesca Spidalieri noted “The Cyber Leadership project, and especially the Rhode Island Corporate Cybersecurity Initiative (RICCI), has already benefited greatly from Ellen’s active participation in important discussions about timely and significant cyber issues, such as breach response, regulatory and legal insights to legislative initiatives, information sharing across many sectors, and risk management. Thanks to Ellen Giblin, RICCI will now be able to expand the scope of its research and outreach to many other emerging areas in the cyber threat landscape.”
“The Pell Center fellows program continues to grow with gifted scholar-practitioners like Ellen Giblin,” continued Ludes. “Together, they keep us connected to developments in a diverse array of fields and leaven the work we do.”
