In the Spotlight

Sarah Wilbur Institute for Privacy Protection

Meet Sarah Hsu Wilbur, an Institute for Privacy Protection Student Fellow 2017-2018

Sarah currently is a junior associate in the Litigation practice group at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP. She works on a variety of cases in the areas of complex commercial litigation, civil litigation, and regulatory enforcement and investigation, some of which touch on privacy issues. She hopes to do more work in cybersecurity and data privacy law as those opportunities present themselves. She originally became interested in cybersecurity and data privacy issues after doing research for Professor Kristin Johnson regarding the cyber and privacy risks that financial institutions face and what can be done to prevent and mitigate those risks. She wrote her Comment for the Seton Hall Law Review on the Cybersecurity Act of 2015, examining the legislative ambiguities within the Act that resemble legislative ambiguities in the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act--over which there is a current circuit split of interpretation and which give rise to privacy issues.
