A CALL TO ACTION
After 25 years of combined law practice, Attorneys Jim Ickes and Joel Holt reached one, undeniable conclusion:
“Information security and privacy law is the defining legal challenge of this generation.”
They realized that business, healthcare, banking, and yes, even law firms, were ill-informed and unequipped to deal with the coming sea change. Most importantly, as consumers, patients, and lawyers, they decided that they needed to do something about it.

So, well into their careers, Jim and Joel went back to school. In between practicing law and raising families, they studied. And studied. And studied. Jim kicked down the first door, earning a GLEG certification. Jim and Joel each obtained CIPP-US certifications in 2016. Jim followed that up with the difficult to obtain HCISSP certification.
Jim and Joel strive to be thought leaders in the area of information security and privacy, writing articles, attending and presenting at seminars. In 2016, Jim and Joel were tapped to present an Ohio Association of Justice seminar on Data Breach Litigation and presented 3 hours of a 6-hour national webinar for National Business Institute entitled Cybersecurity: The Ultimate Guide. In 2017, Jim and Joel are already slated to appear at seminars for the Better Business Bureau and Northeast Ohio Healthcare Financial Management Association. Finally, with a little bit of luck, the pair will author a book on information security and privacy law by the end of 2017.
