Elizabeth Wharton

I'm a technology-focused business advisor and attorney specializing in the development, security, and scale of emerging technologies including drones, smart cities, and autonomous vehicles. As Chief of Staff for Scythe, I leverage over 10 years in information security to oversee the development and implementation of legal, policy, and strategic partnerships. I've advised and worked with small startups, independent security researchers, and multi-national companies on a variety of corporate, financing, public policy, and security related matters.

Prior to Scythe, I was the Senior Assistant City Attorney for the City of Atlanta responsible for advising Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (the World's Busiest Airport) on technology policy and projects - including the first of its kind airport UAS Safety Risk Assessment on the integration of drones into airfield operations and development of UAS standard operating procedures. I also served on the immediate incident response team for the City of Atlanta's 2018 ransomware incident.

A recognized cyber security and privacy expert, especially at the intersection of public policy and business practice, I've served on numerous national technology and information security regulatory working groups and have spoken at conferences ranging from SXSW to BSides Las Vegas to Cyber Security Atlanta. For two years I hosted the weekly "Buzz Off with Lawyer Liz" podcast and radio show, interviewing noted experts on IoT, drones, and cybersecurity technology, trends, and regulations.

A mentor for CyberLaunch VC's startup accelerator and the immediate past-president of the Atlanta Chapter for the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, I'm also a volunteer with various STEM and robotics student organizations and competitions.
