Those of you familiar with the area of data privacy already know that the International Association of Privacy Professionals’ (“IAPP”) CIPP/US certification is the global gold standard for privacy professionals and a key industry benchmark.  The CIPP/US designation demonstrates familiarity with U.S. privacy laws and regulations.  Well, CPW is proud to announce that one of our extremely talented litigators Kristin Bryan has joined the group of CIPP/US certified attorneys, which already included CPW’s privacy pros Elliot Golding and Lauren Kitces.  As you may know, here at CPW we have assembled one of the most experienced and dedicated consumer privacy teams on the planet—powerful class action litigators working together with privacy compliance professionals who have real-world experience operationalizing cutting-edge guidance.  Adding this important certification to our deep bench of litigators further enhances our team’s capabilities.

Do you know Kristin?  Kristin is a world class litigator who graduated with honors from Columbia Law School.  She has a multi-faceted data privacy practice, which includes experience defending clients in federal class action and multidistrict litigation concerning allegations that their online privacy and marketing practices violated federal and state privacy laws.  But that’s not all folks.  As a natural extension of her experience litigating data privacy disputes, Kristin is also experienced in providing practical, business-oriented privacy advice to a wide range of clients and has represented them in government investigations regarding their privacy practices.  Kristin is a regular contributor to CPW and routinely publishes and speaks on cutting edge developments in data privacy.  She is also the co-chair of the IAPP Knowledge Net Chapter of Cleveland and admitted to practice in New York and Ohio.

Bravo Zulu, Kristin.
