Description

For lawyers, reasonable cybersecurity and prevention of cybercrime is a professional responsibility where deficiencies can have serious consequences. Laws and regulations are shaping the standards for cybersecurity in business and society, and lawyers can play a positive role in this development, and in properly advising their clients. The ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct provide the fabric through which this program weaves guidance about cybersecurity, information security, and the prevention of cybercrime. Good cybersecurity requires making good choices.

John Bandler

Founder
Bandler Law Firm PLLC

I founded a law firm and consulting firm to help individuals and organizations with the many threats and risks they face, including cybercrime. Prevention (e.g. cybersecurity) is better than investigating the cybercrime incident after it occurs..

I write, teach, and speak about cybersecurity, cybercrime, money laundering, criminal justice, and other topics, and have authored articles on these subjects also.

I am the author of two books. My first was Cybersecurity for the Home and Office: The Lawyer's Guide to Taking Charge of Your Own Information Security, a comprehensive guide for readers of every technical skill level. It's a lawyer's guide but it's suitable for anyone who wants to improve their knowledge and improve their security at home and in the workplace. My next book is Cybercrime Investigations: The Comprehensive Resource for Everyone, written for all sectors, for investigators of all types.

I entered the private sector in 2015, after spending over twenty years in law enforcement as a prosecutor and police officer.

In 2002, I was hired by the legendary Robert M. Morgenthau as an Assistant District Attorney at the New York County District Attorney's Office. For thirteen years I worked there and investigated and prosecuted a wide variety of cases ranging from global cybercrime and financial crime to violent street crime. Notably, and with a dedicated team, we investigated and proved a ground breaking case, People v. Western Express International, Inc. et al. The investigation and prosecution uncovered the global trafficking of stolen hacked data, money laundering of digital currency criminal proceeds, and identity theft, and successfully prosecuted international cybercriminals and U.S. based identity thieves, which culminated in guilty verdicts after a lengthy trial in 2013. My new book has some vignettes about this case. I also worked on hundreds of other matters that were also important, especially to the victims and for the administration of justice.

In 1994 I graduated from the New York State Police Academy and went on to serve as a State Trooper in the New York State Police for eight years, serving in one of the busiest stations in the state, providing full police services to the local community. While serving as a Trooper, I attended Pace University School of Law, where I graduated in 2002.

I graduated from Hamilton College in 1992 with a major in Physics and a minor in Computer Science, and earned the Phi Betta Kappa key. I also earned his commission in the U.S. Army through the R.O.T.C. program, and went on to serve in the New York Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserves, serving in Infantry and Military Intelligence Units.

#ItsMyLane: Legal & Medical Ethics When Doctors Speak Out on Public Policy
From gun violence to abortion to medical marijuana, physicians feel increasing pressure to speak out on public policy issues. At the same time, public advocacy activities may expose physicians to licensure risks, prosecution, and even the threat of violence. Lawyers who advise physicians on such issues also face ethical and professional responsibility challenges, especially where there are legal and practical constraints on physicians' abilities to advocate for certain positions. Explore current controversies affecting physicians and public policy, and learn about the professional obligations of the lawyers who advise them.
