Judy Branham

Managing Director at Stroz Friedberg, an Aon company

I am an information technology and cybersecurity consultant helping clients understand and mitigate their digital risks and solve complex problems. I have over 25 years of experience in law, technology, e-discovery, and digital forensics. For the past 10 years, I have focused on cybersecurity and incident response, data privacy, information governance, e-discovery, compliance, and digital forensic investigations, including theft of trade secrets and IP. My clients include global companies operating in health care, finance, manufacturing, information technology, and other sectors.

I led investigations of and responses to complex data breaches and security incidents, including those involving state-sponsored threats, organized crime, and insider threats. I have worked on some of the nation’s largest breaches and drafted responses to inquiries from regulators. I work with clients to design incident response (IR) processes and plans and conduct tabletop exercises to test IR plans and responses. I assist companies with data mapping, conducting HIPAA security assessments, and other data privacy issues, including conducting the first independent privacy assessment of a mobile app provider, Path, Inc. under a Consent Decree and Order with the FTC. I have also conducted enterprise-wide cyber security risk assessments and led penetration testing engagements for various business sectors. Additionally, I led complex digital forensic investigations into such things as theft of trade secret information and employee misconduct investigations.
