In The News - San Jose Mercury News Publishes Op-Ed Piece by IAPP Board Member John Berard

July 1, 2006

John Berard, Managing Director for Zeno Group in San Francisco and a member of the IAPP Board, showcased the IAPP's role in promoting responsible customer data use in an opinion-editorial piece published in the San Jose Mercury News in June.

Berard, CIPP, capitalized on the opportunity to highlight data security before the Common-wealth Club of Silicon Valley and Microsoft who held a forum on digital privacy on June 22, in Mountain View, Calif.

"The privacy community recognizes the urgent need to build consumer trust by being open, clear and responsible for our data security practices," Berard wrote. "Those of us committed to privacy protection understand that the continued growth and success of our information economy is dependent on this effort."
