Sagi Leizerov, CIPP/US, has been named Chief Data Solutions Officer of Prifender, the company announced. Leizerov spent the last 16 years as EY’s Global Privacy Leader, serving Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies from different industries. “I have been part of the privacy field since its infancy. I started in 1998 and saw this field move from a compliance based approach to risk management, and most recently the ‘accountability-era’ of privacy. These different eras in our young professions were all marked with good intention, but very little capability in enforcing rules, demonstrating compliance and backing up any claims of accountability. I wholeheartedly believe that the solution that Prifender is offering is the future of the privacy profession, and I want to be at the forefront of this emerging paradigm shift in the privacy field,” said Leizerov.
