December 1, 2006

Eager for an expert assessment on how the new political landscape in Washington will likely impact privacy and security legislation, reporters dialed in for the IAPP's well-attended Nov. 16 audio conference, "Privacy, Security and the New Congress: What to Expect in 2007."

Among the ink that the IAPP received for the audio conference, which was co-sponsored by (ISC)2 and Larstan's Black Book Series, was Greg Piper's lead story in the Nov. 20 edition of Washington Internet Daily. Other reporters who listened in were Don Alpin of BNA's Privacy & Security Law Report, Theresa Defino of the AIS Report On Patient Privacy and Cory Levine of Wall Street & Technology.

  • Lynn McNulty, Director of Government Affairs, Information Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2
  • Peter P. Swire, CIPP, C. William O'Neill Professor of Law, Moritz College of Law of The Ohio State University; Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress (formerly Chief Counselor for Privacy, U.S. Office of Management & Budget)
