Attorney Natalie Friend Wilson Receives Certified Information Privacy Professional Designation
Shareholder Natalie Friend Wilson, a board certified business bankruptcy attorney in Langley & Banack, Inc., has earned the Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). The credential is the global standard in privacy and data protection and is accredited by American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Developed and launched by the IAPP with leading subject matter experts, the CIPP is the world’s first broad-based global privacy and data protection credentialing program.
As head of the firm’s Cybersecurity, Data Protection and Privacy practice group, Wilson counsels clients on enhanced compliance of privacy and data protection, governance policies and protocols, and general cyber-contracting matters, helping companies assess and manage the risk of a data breach and respond appropriately if protected information is compromised, the firm said in a release. She and practice group members assist organizations to manage rapidly evolving privacy threats and mitigate the potential loss and misuse of information assets.
“Privacy and data protection laws on the federal and state level work on a sectoral basis,” Wilson said. “Financial, healthcare, employer, consumer, and other sectors are governed by a complex web of privacy and data protection laws that are continuously evolving as online technology changes,” continued Wilson.
A breach can involve the unauthorized access of personal information or otherwise confidential data, such as trade secrets, confidential business processes, corporate structures and more.
Wilson holds a B.A. from St. Mary’s College of Maryland, summa cum laude, and a J.D. from the University of Hawai’i, William S. Richardson School of Law, where she graduated cum laude. She is a board certified in Business Bankruptcy by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Ms. Wilson practices in both Bankruptcy and Workouts, as well as Cybersecurity, Data Protection and Privacy for the firm.
