Winner: Hunton & Williams LLP and Jaffe PR - Privacy Blog Influences Global Privacy and Data Security Developments
On Dec. 1, 2010, when the U.S. Federal Trade Commission released a long-awaited report proposing a new framework for privacy in the U.S., it was not surprising that on page 19 of the 122-page document, Hunton & Williams’ Privacy and Information Security Law Blog was cited as a source. The firm’s Privacy Blog has become a critical element in the global policy debate and a vital influencer for international data protection commissioners, lawmakers, global corporations, academics and reporters. The blog is one-stop shop for readers, with a news feed on privacy-related topics, easy-to-find, searchable topics and links to related publications and resources, as well as 2.0 sharing capabilities via Twitter and LinkedIn.
