We are a partner of business leaders, regulators and policymakers developing global solutions for privacy and responsible data use.
The Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL) is a global privacy and data policy think and do 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. 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 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.
