Washington, DC (April 24, 2023) - ZeroDay Law, a leading privacy and cybersecurity law firm specializing in cyber incident  response, is proud to announce that Tara Swaminatha, Principal and Founder of ZeroDay Law, has been named as one of the Top 50 Incident Response Lawyers for 2023. Tara was also recognized in 2018 and 2019 and is one of only a handful of incident response professionals to receive the honor more than once.

The Incident Response Top 50 list is an annual recognition by Cybersecurity Docket, a leading cyber industry media company, that honors the top data breach and incident response lawyers worldwide. The Incident Response Top 50 selections are based on nominations and input from senior lawyers and other professionals in the field as well as extensive research. The attorneys chosen for inclusion must also have a practice dedicated primarily to cyber incident response. This year, due to an overwhelming number of submissions from across the world, the list was expanded from 40 to 50.

"We are thrilled that Tara has been recognized as one of the best cyber incident response lawyers worldwide," said Neala Deer, Senior Vice President Tech & Ops, Cyber & Privacy Lead at ZeroDay Law. "Her expertise in this field is unparalleled, and this recognition is a testament to Tara's industry-leading expertise and portfolio of work."

Tara Swaminatha is a Principal at ZeroDay Law and has extensive experience in data breach response, privacy, and cybersecurity law. She has been instrumental in helping clients navigate complex legal and technical issues related to data breaches and cybersecurity incidents. Tara's dedication to her clients and her ability to provide innovative solutions has positioned her as a highly regarded and sought-after resource among legal and cyber professionals.  In a world oversaturated with cybersecurity and privacy recommendations, strategies, programs, products and services, Tara helps clients decide what they really need based on their unique situations.

"I am honored to be named on the  Incident Response Top 50 list for 2023," said Tara Swaminatha. "This recognition highlights the hard work and dedication of the entire team at ZeroDay Law, and I am proud to be a part of this firm. I look forward to continuing to help our clients navigate the ever-evolving landscape of data breach response and cybersecurity law."

Four years ago, Tara left her position as a Data Privacy & Cybersecurity partner at a global law firm to found ZeroDay Law so she could dedicate her practice to two equally important goals: high-caliber cyber law and diversity, especially for women of color. Tara and the ZeroDay Law team believe strongly that the fast-paced, high-demand cyber and privacy law practice area is a prime platform for helping advance diverse practitioners from a variety of disciplines in cybersecurity and privacy. Tara serves on the Advisory Board of Corporate Counsel Women of Color, the world’s largest organization for in-house women of color attorneys.

The public announcement of the full list of 50 honorees took place at the Incident Response Forum Masterclass, held as a virtual event on Thursday, April 20, 2023.
