Matthew Siegel, a member of Cozen O’Connor’s Privacy & Data Security practice, was named to the Rutgers University Cybersecurity Certificate Program Advisory Board. The Cybersecurity Certificate Program at Rutgers explores the crossroads of business and technology joining students with executives, cybersecurity experts, innovators, and regulators to address cybersecurity from a business point of view. The certificate program is offered in connection with the Rutgers Center for Innovation Education and the Rutgers Professional Science Master's Degree. As a member of the advisory board, Siegel will help grow the program — faculty and students— and develop the curriculum.
Siegel focuses his practice in the areas of cyber and technology risks, commercial litigation, and insurance coverage. He counsels clients on the evaluation of data privacy risks, responses and solutions, and he serves as a breach coach, providing analysis and advice to address data breach events, including forensics, notification pursuant to federal and state laws, credit monitoring, and public relations issues. In addition to breach response, Siegel has counseled insurers on the underwriting and coverage issues arising under cyber-risk policies. Siegel received his Bachelor of Arts from Colgate University in 1995 and earned his law degree, cum laude, at Temple University Beasley School of Law.
