Ella Shenhav, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Tampa office, has been appointed to the newly created Cybersecurity and Privacy Law Committee for The Florida Bar, with a term effective through June 30, 2024.
Appointed by President-Elect of The Florida Bar, F. Scott Westheimer, Ella will work with her fellow committee members to develop resources for Bar members to better achieve cyber-resiliency, and to better understand how cybersecurity impacts legal ethics, including competence, diligence, client-confidentiality and third-party confidentiality.
The Standing Committee on Cybersecurity and Privacy Law is believed to be a first for any integrated bar. Florida Bar sections, divisions, and committees have focused intently on cybersecurity for the past few years. The Standing Committee, as well as a Board Committee on Artificial Intelligence Tools and Resources, were unanimously approved by the Florida Bar’s board of Governors in a meeting on May 12, 2023.
