St. Louis Intellectual Property Attorney Lucas Amodio Earns Certified Ethical Hacker Credential

December 3, 2014 Press Releases

Lucas Amodio, an attorney in Armstrong Teasdale’s Intellectual Property practice group, has become a Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) through the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC Council). An “ethical hacker” is an information security professional trained to penetrate networks and/or computer systems using the same methods and techniques as a criminal hacker.

The EC Council is one of the world’s largest certification bodies for information security professionals. Its C|EH program teaches such professionals how to think like a hacker through classes aimed at teaching detailed mechanics of various attack vectors, including hacking web applications, mobile device platforms, wireless networks and social engineering.

He is the second attorney at Armstrong Teasdale to earn this credential. It enhances Amodio’s patent law and data security practices, augmenting his ability to counsel clients about security flaws and techniques to protect their data.

Admitted to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Amodio focuses on high-technology and computer-related matters. A former software engineer and patent examiner, he guides in-house counsel, inventors and patent examiners in applying for and protecting U.S. and foreign patent applications.

Amodio earned his J.D. from Indiana University School of Law – Bloomington and M.B.A. from Indiana University.
