Speaker: Camelia Lopez
Title: Making a Federal Case Out of It
Camelia Lopez has served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas in Plano since 2009. She is a Deputy Criminal Chief and Attorney-in-Charge of the Plano office, while also serving as the district coordinator and lead attorney for Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property matters. She is also the district’s National Security Cyber Specialist and manages a full docket of cases involving identity cyber intrusion, fraud, money laundering, export control, and terrorism. For her work in a case involving international drug distribution, Camelia was awarded with the Director’s Award, the highest honor an AUSA can receive from the Department of Justice for excellence in prosecution.
Prior to joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Camelia was an Assistant District Attorney for Dallas County for 6 years prosecuting white-collar crimes. She received her Juris Doctor from American University’s Washington College of Law, Washington, DC, in 2002, and graduated from SMU in 1999 with a BBA in Finance and minors in Economics and Latin American Studies.
Camelia is a frequent speaker on topics relating to cybercrime response and enforcement.
The idiom “don’t make a federal case out of it” is popular because people understand that federal cases are typically reserved for the most important issues – and what is more important to a business than information security? Businesses today depend on the integrity of their computer networks to communicate, strategize, and develop their assets. Our economy – and our national security – are threatened when hackers exploit vulnerabilities in the networks. This presentation is intended to demystify the process of how and why federal cases are developed, and how the private sector can proactively work with federal law enforcement to minimize damage to themselves, deter and capture perpetrators, and protect themselves moving forward.
