TRUST researcher Deirde Mulligan receives IAPP Privacy Leadership Award

TRUST researcher Deirdre Mulligan has been awarded the prestigious IAPP Privacy Leadership Award for 2016, along with Professor Kenneth Bamberger, also at Berkeley. The two received the honor from the International Association of Privacy Professionals in recognition for their groundbreaking research on the unwritten laws of privacy — the way privacy professionals steer the internal governance of privacy within companies — and their book Privacy on the Ground.

The award recognizes global leaders in the field of privacy and data protection who have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to furthering privacy policy, promoting recognition of privacy issues, and advancing the growth and visibility of the privacy profession.
