Peter Marta, most recently chief cybersecurity lawyer at JPMorgan Chase & Co., has joined the privacy and cybersecurity practice of Hogan Lovells in New York as a partner, where he plans to help clients handle regulatory issues and cyber threats.

Marta, who spent about six and a half years at the bank, led a global team of five lawyers who counseled the bank’s 3,000-person cybersecurity department. Part of Marta’s job at JPMorgan involved looking at law firms’ cybersecurity efforts. While he said that he was not a technologist, he said that on the whole, law firms are doing better than they were five years ago. The same could be said for many industries, he said.
