Shampa Chatterjee, CIPT



Director, Data Privacy

Starting my career as a programmer analyst at American Express almost 25 years ago, I have worked in technologies as well as within business managing global implementation of Privacy capabilities and projects, having traveled to countries including the UK, Australia, Italy, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico, Canada, and India to support rollout and training activities.

I have worked to support the development, coordination, and implementation of American Express’ global privacy program, ensuring adherence to our enterprise privacy risk appetite globally through effective privacy oversight and second line of defense challenge. While at American Express, I have led audits and assessments of Privacy, Data Protection, Information Security and IT risks in our products and processes, provided direction on creating and maintaining a strong control environment within inherently high privacy risk areas. I became certified with a CIPT in 2009 and CISSP in 2015 and have overseen complex global projects aimed at achieving compliance with regulations such as EU ePrivacy cookies directive as well as GDPR.

I have served as IAPP Phoenix Chapter KnowledgeNet co-chair – Jan 2019 – Dec 2020.

Most recently, I am working as Compliance Chief Privacy Officer at Silicon Valley Bank, responsible for creating a Global policy framework including supplemental guidance’s. My role necessitates fostering strong partnerships with first line Privacy and Security teams, Enterprise Risk Management, Legal, Compliance and other stakeholders in overseeing privacy regulatory change management and fostering a culture of privacy at SVB, integrating SVB Data Protection & Privacy Principles into all aspects of business development.
