Here’s a list of the movers and shakers in the privacy profession within the last couple months. Have a move or a shake of your own you’d like mentioned? Email Joe Duball at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gov. Larry Hogan, R-Md., appointed Laura Gomez-Martin Maryland's first-ever chief privacy officer. Gomez-Martin was deputy chief information security officer at Maryland's Department of Information Technology before being tapped by Hogan. Her role as deputy CISO included implementing and supporting large scale cybersecurity and privacy initiatives within Maryland's public and private sectors. "How organizations collect and use data has increasingly become an important issue, and I'm excited to work with the governor's office and state agencies to continue building privacy practices that protect the personal information of Maryland residents," Gomez-Martin said.
Jenny Hamilton, CIPP/E
Software provider Exterro hired Jenny Hamilton as its general counsel. Hamilton is making the move to Exterro after helping build out HaystackID's compliance program as its general counsel and data protection officer. At Exterro, Hamilton will be charged with heading up the human resource and legal departments. "I look forward to applying my unique customer and industry experience to enhance our ability to increase overall adoption of Exterro's e-Discovery suite and Review technology, while adding to the firm's overall market share," Hamilton said.
Daniel Kaufman joined BakerHostetler as a partner in the firm's Digital Assets and Data Management practice group. Kaufman previously worked 23 years for the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, including serving as acting director for the Bureau of Consumer Protection. He will focus his work at BakerHostetler on consumer protection matters related to advertising, marketing, privacy and data security. “Navigating the compliance landscape in the advertising, privacy and data security world is challenging, and Daniel will be a great resource for our clients," BakerHostetler's Ted Kobus said.
Whitney Philips, CIPP/US, CIPM
The State of Utah announced Whitney Phillips as the state’s first chief privacy officer. Phillips will step into her new role after serving as CPO of Utah's Board of Education. She will begin the role — which was created earlier this year by a law that also establishes a 12-member Personal Privacy Oversight Commission — at the end of the month. Utah Auditor John Dougall said Phillips will oversee 1,000 government entities in Utah, analyzing government practices, providing training, identifying risks and informing the legislature of solutions.
