CPW congratulates Lydia F de la Torre on her selection to the inaugural board for the California Privacy Protection Agency.  She joins a talented team of experts who will guide California through this new chapter in data privacy.  We wish her all the best on this exciting opportunity.

“The chance to serve on the Board of the new California Privacy Protection Agency is a great opportunity for Lydia, and one for which she is exceptionally well suited given her diverse background and talents.  She has uniquely balanced an academic and private practice career, and public service is a natural next step for her” said Alan Friel, Deputy Chair of Squire Patton Boggs’ Global Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice.  “We could not be happier for her and commend Senator Atkins on the selection of such a qualified individual.  While we are sorry to see Lydia go, her selection continues a long tradition of public service by our attorneys, which our firm fully embraces.”
