When it comes to privacy protection planning, Texas Comptroller Susan Combs may have summed it up best, telling a crowd of approximately 500 privacy professionals, “Never assume you’ve done enough…it’s always evolving.”

As the keynote speaker for the 2011 IAPP Privacy Dinner and Awards Ceremony, Combs shared key lessons learned from a breach that had significant impact on her office and prompted what IAPP Board Member Lisa Sotto described as the comptroller’s commitment to becoming a model for privacy and data protection going forward.

While Combs immediately won over the crowd with her wit and her insights into how an agency, business or organization can learn from a data breach and make improvements going forward, her keynote was just the start of an evening of celebration and words of wisdom from privacy experts as the dinner continued with the announcement of four very special award winners.

Hewlett Packard Vice President and Chief Privacy Officer Scott Taylor, CIPP, announced the first award winner of the evening, with the HP-IAPP Privacy Innovation Award for a Large Organization going to Warner Bros. Entertainment for its “Put Yourself in the Picture Awareness Campaign,” which was created to illustrate privacy, security and social media risks and employees’ responsibilities for protecting data and proprietary information.

IAPP Treasurer Brendon Lynch, CIPP, then announced the not-for-profit Ontario Telemedicine Network as the winner in the small organization category, for those with fewer than 5,000 employees, which was honored for its comprehensive efforts to reduce privacy incidents by including privacy in its strategic plan and building and executing a successful two-year strategy to improve data protection.

D. Reed Freeman Jr., CIPP, then presented the award in the technology category to Heartland Payment Systems for its E3™ end-to-end encryption solution for preventing credit/debit card fraud by protecting cardholder information throughout the entire transaction.

Weighing in on this year’s award recipients, both Taylor and IAPP President and CEO Trevor Hughes, CIPP, had words of praise for their efforts.

“This year’s HP-IAPP Privacy Innovation Award winners showcase creative and comprehensive approaches to creating more trusted environments for staff, consumers and business,” Hughes said, adding, “We applaud these organizations for their commitment to advancing privacy and security and their willingness to share their ideas.”

Taylor, meanwhile, said, “HP is pleased to sponsor this award that recognizes advancements in privacy worldwide…These initiatives and technologies are great examples of how privacy can be beneficial to organizations.”

Near the end of the dinner, IAPP Past President Nuala O’Connor Kelly, CIPP, CIPP/G, took to the stage to introduce the 2011 IAPP Privacy Vanguard Award Winner, hailing this year’s recipient as an educator, advocate and “model of courage, of poise and grace”

Acxiom Corporation Executive for Global Public Policy and Privacy Jennifer Barrett Glasgow has received the 2011 IAPP Privacy Vanguard Award after being selected for her leadership, knowledge and involvement.

“Jennifer Barrett Glasgow’s extensive body of work and deep expertise has helped advance and influence global data protection in tangible ways,” said IAPP Chairman Bojana Bellamy, director of data privacy at Accenture. “The field will continue to benefit from her leadership and vision, and this IAPP Privacy Vanguard Award reflects the appreciation of her peers.”
