Katie Morehead focuses her practice on cybersecurity and privacy matters. She leverages her background in computer science to help clients bridge the gap between legal requirements and technical specifications. Katie works with clients to identify privacy gaps in current data collection practices, map data flows, and create inventories of consumer data to facilitate compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Katie also advises on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and assists clients by creating compliant privacy notices, internal privacy policies, and privacy impact assessments.

Prior to joining the firm, Katie was an associate in the Cybersecurity and Privacy practice at PricewaterhouseCooper, where she advised clients on both the applicability of the GDPR and the CCPA to their personal data processing as well as compliance with other privacy regulations such as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and HIPAA.

While in law school, Katie held high-profile internships at Facebook, the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, the House of Representatives, the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Commerce where she assisted with privacy and cybersecurity policy matters.
