A former New Jersey deputy attorney general, Elliott Siebers now helps clients with privacy and information security, advertising technology, and other consumer protection matters. He handles breach preparedness and response, compliance with U.S. federal and state laws, and regulatory investigations by the FTC and State AGs.
In his most recent role, Elliott served as Section Chief of the Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Section, overseeing a team of attorneys that handled multi-state and New Jersey-initiated investigations into violations of consumer protection law, including the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, Identity Theft Prevention Act, HIPAA, and COPPA.
As a former state privacy regulator, Elliott brings valuable insight to help his clients identify and stay ahead of enforcement trends. He works with them to identify and mitigate risks to their sensitive data and implement and comply with industry security standards and state and federal requirements, including through data-mapping exercises and the development of information security programs and incident response plans.
In the event of a security incident, Elliott handles all aspects of the response, including investigation, containment, mitigation, and management. He also advises on choosing vendors; notifying affected individuals, regulators, and stakeholders; and creating a PR strategy.
Elliott helps clients address requirements under constantly evolving privacy laws and regulations, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCPDA), and Colorado Privacy Act (all effective in 2023), and other sector-specific laws.
Elliott drafts and negotiates complex agreements involving data, including SaaS, adtech, and technology agreements, and he works with clients to develop internal and consumer-facing policies and procedures, including privacy policies and terms.
