Sustaining a "Culture of Privacy"
PRIVACYOctober 1, 2010
U.S. Department of Homeland Security CPO Mary Ellen Callahan, CIPP, and GE Senior Counsel, Information Governance and Chief Privacy Leader Nuala O'Connor Kelly, CIPP, CIPP/G, offered their insights on how to maintain privacy as a priority throughout organizations that must also balance competing demands and diverse regulatory requirements. Speaking at the IAPP Privacy Academy in Baltimore, MD, both shared their experiences and conclusions, suggesting that people--in the form of allies within and beyond a given organization--are invaluable assets to privacy protection. Privacy officers should focus on building a team, both agreed, as one person cannot know everything that goes on in an organization the size of the Department of Homeland Security or GE.
