2011 Legal PR Awards: Legal PR Blog

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. With more than 200,000 total page views since it launched in January 2009, the blog has informed nearly 100,000 unique visitors from around the world.
