PrivSec200: Recognising privacy and security professionals from across the US East Coast

PrivSec 200 (East Coast) sponsored by OneTrust celebrates the achievements of individuals who are driving forward the much-needed evolvement of privacy and security processes in their organizations. As the world shifts to a privacy and security first frame of mind, it is important those who have a say over the practices of their organizations are ensuring that personal data and the rights of their consumers come first.

Commenting on those who will be awarded, Ian Evans, Managing Director – EMEA, OneTrust said:

“I wish to pass on my preliminary congratulations to those who will receive the inaugural PrivSec 200 recognition. These privacy and security professionals have led their organisations through significant regulatory change and created sustainable programmes to keep up with the changing global environment.”

Steve Wright, CEO and Founder of Privacy Culture, commented:

‘It is important to recognise the great work many professionals are doing in the privacy and security space. I am delighted to congratulate all those that have been included in PrivSec (East Coast, USA) and I’m pleased to be part of this process. This comes at an exciting time, as new privacy laws continue to sweep across states in the USA, and with the chances of a federal [privacy] law becoming ever more feasible’.
Founder and CEO of Data Protection World Forum, Nick James added:

“We’re delighted to unveil the PrivSec200, featuring privacy and security professionals who are making a difference to their organisations and the wider community.”
