Mary Alexander Myers, partner in the Firm's Cybersecurity, Privacy & Data Protection Practice, is included in the 2023 class of the Emory Alumni Association's "40 Under Forty" recognition program, which recognizes Emory alumni based on professional accomplishments and civic endeavors.

Based in the Atlanta Office, Ms. Myers works closely with clients on a range of strategic technology transactions and cybersecurity and data privacy matters focused on protecting key intellectual property and data assets. She also develops and leads privacy programs that help clients comply with challenging data protection laws and counsels clients on complex fintech matters, including the offering of a new payment technology product and an in-automobile payments service.

Heavily involved in pro bono work in the Atlanta metropolitan area, Ms. Myers focuses on issues relating to equity in public schools and has represented students in the juvenile justice system. She has served on the Board of Directors for the Truancy Intervention Project for six years and applied her insights on data privacy and "big data" to assist nonprofits focused on using data to fight human trafficking.

Ms. Myers graduated magna cum laude from Emory University in 2009, where she was also a Goodrich C. White Scholar. She serves on the Executive Committee for the Privacy and Technology Section of the State Bar of Georgia.

Ms. Myers was chosen by a selection committee comprised of Emory faculty and staff and former "40 Under Forty" recipients, and ultimately selected by the Emory Alumni Board, who reviewed more than 200 nominations from around the world.
