Especially now, while most of us are stuck indoors hiding from the invisible monster that is the COVID-19 disease, it's not difficult to imagine better days — days when we can safely travel again to faraway islands with blue-glass waters and sandy beaches. Or, you could do what Alex White, CIPP/A, CIPP/C, CIPP/E, CIPP/G, CIPP/US, CIPM, CIPT, FIP, did and move there. The former deputy chief privacy officer of South Carolina didn't move to the island for a vacation, though. He took the job as the country's first-ever privacy commissioner, a position created with the passage of Bermuda's privacy law in 2016.
