Sparke Helmore congratulates Edward Osborne, who has been promoted to Partner.

Edward re-joined Sparke Helmore in February 2020—having previously been an Associate with the firm—specialising in Cyber Insurance with a focus on cyber risk, privacy and data protection.

Having worked as a senior cybersecurity and privacy consultant at PwC and as senior counsel and privacy director at a Fortune 500 group responsible for managing its privacy risk globally, Ed’s specialist knowledge is a rare and valuable commodity in the Australian market. He brings to the table outstanding experience working across key jurisdictions such as North America, Europe, UK, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

National Managing Partner, Phillip Salem, said “I am proud to have Edward join our partnership. Edward is a leading practitioner and thought leader in the cyber risk space and his promotion is very much testament to his exceptional skill.”

Edward’s promotion is effective from 1 January 2021.
