January 16, 2020

Mike Shapiro, Chief Privacy Officer, County of Santa Clara

Our January speaker is Mike Shapiro who was hired in 2017 as the first Chief Privacy Officer for our county -- perhaps the first in the nation. Santa Clara County collects sensitive and personal information, including health, financial, voting, and criminal records. The County Board of Supervisors wants our county to become a national leader—in not only protecting that information from outside assault, but in handling it appropriately within the County.

Mike will discuss the latest privacy threats and solutions, best practices for using social media, and how his team is advising county departments to balance responsible information sharing with privacy protections.
