Karen Painter Randall, Chair of Connell Foley's Cybersecurity, Data Privacy and Incident Response Group, is quoted in The American Lawyer article "The Law Firms That Get Hired When A Firm Is Hacked" (published August 16, 2022).
In the article, Karen notes it has taken a while for key stakeholders at law firms to realize that cyber is one of today’s leading business risks.

She has handled hundreds of incident response matters each year since 2010 for carriers and uninsured businesses.
