Kerr Russell attorney Jeffrey May (litigation, cybersecurity) is quoted in the article "Inside Job: Cybersecurity requires care, vigilance by all," written by J.D. Booth for Corp! Magazine.

Passage which includes Jeff follows:

"There are also the legal implications of cybersecurity to be considered, which is why folks like Jeffrey May are kept so busy. May is an associate attorney with Kerr Russell, a firm with offices in Detroit, Troy, and China. His graduate degree in Information Technology, coupled with his law degree, helps him deal with clients concerned with data breaches and the protection of their customers' data. 'We also work with them on questions about who they have to report to, and when, if a data breach occurs,' he adds, noting that the procedures and responses are on a case-by-case basis. Understanding the statutory requirements flows through to areas like the new General Data Protection Regulation, a legal framework whereby the European Union has set guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals. 'That's a big one right now and it's driving security discussions, with companies having to be clear about the data they're collecting, using and storing and how they respond to customer queries,' says May."
