Kara Larson, CIPP/E, CIPM
Kara Larson is a New Orleans attorney with a passion for privacy. Before law school, Kara worked for Best Buy’s Geek Squad. As a Double Agent, she performed hardware, software, and network setup, troubleshooting, and training for residential and commercial customers. While her interest in technology and its implications predates this experience, it is this role that she credits with igniting her desire to learn more about the interconnected issues of technology and privacy.
After serving as a federal clerk for the Lake Charles Division of the Western District of Louisiana, Kara spent the first five years of her legal career focused on helping those accused of criminal offenses. It is a priority and duty for her to serve others because of the privilege afforded her by a law degree. However, she was also able to further her education in technology and privacy during this time because of the roles that both play in today’s offenses and investigations.
Kara is a Certified Information Privacy Professional – Europe (CIPP-E) and Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM). She is also working on becoming a Certified Information Privacy Professional – United States (CIPP-US). Kara graduated magna cum laude from Loyola University of New Orleans College of Law in 2014 and in the top 5% of her class. While in law school, she was an Articles Editor for the Loyola Law Review, and active in moot court. She likes reading, baking, and playing with her dog in her spare time.
