Lynch: Teach Kids Privacy Along with ABCs
ONLINE PRIVACY—NEW ZEALANDFebruary 17, 2012
In a Stuff.co.nz feature, Microsoft Chief Privacy Officer Brendon Lynch, CIPP/US, says it's just as important to teach children to be good digital citizens as to safely cross the road. Lynch, who helps Microsoft craft policies and standards around its data collection practices, says his history in the manufacturing sector helped prepare him for his current role, which also includes helping the company develop privacy-enhancing technologies. "There are a lot of similarities between quality management and privacy management. Both require gaining the support of top management; establishing and implementing policies; making it a part of the organisation's culture, and continually adapting to a changing environment," Lynch said. Lynch is on the IAPP board of directors.
