We are a global privacy and data policy think tank that works to advance privacy and security policy, law and practice.
The Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL) is a global privacy and data policy think tank based in Washington, DC, Brussels and London. CIPL works with industry leaders, regulatory authorities and policy makers to develop global solutions and best practices for privacy and responsible use of data to enable the modern information age.
Founded in 2001 by leading companies and Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP (formerly Hunton & Williams), CIPL is staffed by advisors who have significant, firsthand experience in business and compliance, government, regulatory policy, consumer advocacy and technology. Our leadership, staff and members work together to develop innovative approaches to privacy and data security policy that take into account the requirements of business processes and concerns surrounding information protection.
CIPL leaders are active internationally and have provided testimony and briefings to legislative bodies, regulatory agencies, and international organizations worldwide.
What We Do
We inform, network, shape and create.
We INFORM through white papers, policy updates, publications, workshops, roundtables, retreats, calls and discussions. We keep privacy executives informed of evolving legislation and help develop a deeper understanding of current and future trends.
We NETWORK with global business leaders, legal professionals, privacy regulators, government officials, academia and consumer advocates to explore key issues and learn from some of the most refined thinkers in information policy, data privacy and organization behavior.
We CREATE and implement information best practices for our members that increase accountability, safeguard consumers, establish meaningful benchmarks and map the future of data privacy and legislation.
