The Privacy Advisor Podcast

May 15, 2020

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 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. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, White talks to host Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, about the challenges of starting up a new office — especially in the midst of a global pandemic — and why he thinks privacy professionals should think of themselves as, of all things, GPS devices.
