The IAPP Publications Team is dedicated to providing the latest news and thought-leadership in the privacy industry. Our flagship publication is The Privacy Advisor, now more than a decade into providing information on important legal developments, interpretations of rules and privacy practices, advice on how best to operate a privacy team and other long-form articles and updates.
The IAPP has since added a suite of blogs and other publications, including Privacy Perspectives, which provides opinion and insight from leading privacy thinkers around the globe; Privacy Tracker, which closely follows legislative developments all over the world and provides guidance on how new laws are to be interpreted; semi-monthly web conferences; books, whitepapers, and various one-offs.
All of this is filtered through the privacy industry’s premier clipping service, The Daily Dashboard, which goes out to roughly 22,000 subscribers every day, and our regional digests, which target Canada, the EU and Australia/New Zealand.
Our team is dedicated to accurate, timely information that you can use to make better decisions for your business, job and day-to-day life. Please contact us at any time with story ideas or pitches for the blogs at firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting any of our staffers below.
Sam Pfeifle, Director: As publications director, Sam oversees everything from the Daily Dashboard to the monthly Privacy Advisor to the IAPP's various blogs, books, web conferences and Resource Center items. If you'd like to contribute to the privacy body of knowledge the IAPP curates on a daily basis—even if you'd like to speak at one of our events—Pfeifle is your first point of contact.
Pfeifle came to the IAPP after stints overseeing a number of B2B publications, including titles in the physical security, workboat and 3D data capture industries. He began his journalism career with the alternative newsweekly The Portland Phoenix, and still writes a local music column for the paper on a weekly basis. In his free time, Pfeifle plays in a bluegrass band, serves on the local Little League board, writes scathing letters to the editor of the local paper and enjoys spending time with his wife and two children in Maine.
Jennifer Saunders, CIPP/US, Managing Editor: In addition to editing, assigning and writing content for various IAPP publications and overseeing production of the IAPP’s Daily Dashboard and regional newsletters, Jen manages the IAPP’s Privacy Professionals Role, Function and Salary Survey and works with Publications Director Sam Pfeifle and the Publications Advisory Board on long-term content planning.
Prior to entering the world of privacy, Jen was working in mainstream journalism for about a dozen years. She holds a Master of Arts degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania and her passions include reading—and writing—fiction, singing, animal rescue and spending time with her daughter.
Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP/US, CIPP/E, Associate Editor: As editor of the Privacy Perspectives blog, Jedidiah Bracy moderates the many views, angles and, well, perspectives that inform information privacy and all its adjacent professions. Bracy also facilitates the vetting, writing, editing and curation for the Daily Dashboard, the IAPP Canada Dashboard Digest, the IAPP Europe Data Protection Digest and the IAPP ANZ Dashboard Digest. He writes feature articles for The Privacy Advisor on information privacy law, data protection and the privacy profession.
When not mulling over the current state of information privacy in the digital age, Bracy enjoys watching international soccer, listening to his music library and tasting a finely wrought craft beer.
Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, Associate Editor: While writing for the IAPP’s Daily Dashboard and weekly global digests has her recaffinating each morning, Angelique oversees publication of the IAPP’s monthly publication, The Privacy Advisor, each month—soliciting, editing and publishing contributions, as well as herself writing in-depth stories on topics affecting privacy pros today.
Angelique’s background is in journalism, editing her college newspaper, The Free Press, at The University of Southern Maine before graduating with a BA in English. After hours, Angelique spends her time running road races, teaching spin classes and hiking in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
Dave Cohen, CIPP/US, Knowledge Manager: In his role as Knowledge Manager, Dave Cohen oversees content contributions from the many privacy professionals actively engaged with the IAPP. These collected works of expertise are shared with IAPP members and the general public through our Privacy Perspectives and Privacy Tracker blogs, The Privacy Advisor newsletter, web conferences and live events throughout the year. He can often be found at IAPP conferences staffing the bookstore.
Outside of the office, Dave enjoys exploring the southern coast of Maine’s natural beauty via bike, canoe, ski and trail and partaking of the Seacoast area’s rich cultural community with his family.
Emily Leach, CIPP/US, Knowledge Manager: In her role at the IAPP, Emily Leach curates and creates resources for the IAPP’s online Resource Center, writes and edits content for the Daily Dashboard, the IAPP Canada Dashboard Digest, the IAPP Europe Data Protection Digest, the IAPP ANZ Dashboard Digest and occasionally writes feature articles for The Privacy Advisor.
Outside of work, Emily serves on education, library and arts boards in her community—that is, when she’s not watching, cheering or coaching her two boys in their latest extra-curricular activities.
Leslie Brenner, Editorial Coordinator: Leslie builds and sends the IAPP’s e-mail newsletter publications. Her work includes formatting content; loading stories and content to the website; managing and updating ads, promos and other rotating information, and following up with subscriber receipt issues. Leslie handles incoming publication e-mail inquiries and outside contributor communications and provides ongoing support to the Publications Team in a variety of ways.
Leslie has been with the IAPP since 2010, previously covering several different roles while working part-time for a local publisher. Leslie holds a BA in psychology from the University of New Hampshire. Outside of working hours, volunteering at Portsmouth Community Radio is just one of the ways she endeavors to build community, supporting local, non-commercial radio. Nothing, however, surpasses time spent with her daughter and son.
