Getting to know a privacy pro

On July 5, 2010, the Mexican Federal Law on Protection of Personal Data Held by Private Parties was officially published. This legislation establishes minimum standards that people who use others’ personal data are obliged to comply in order to protect privacy. Lina Ornelas is the General Director for Privacy Self-regulation at Mexico’s Federal Institute for Access to Information and Data Protection (IFAI). Ornelas works to understand the way private parties who process personal data think and act to find their incentives to protect personal data, she says. She also works to give such parties tools to enable compliance with the law and promote responsible data processing.
