HP Chief Privacy Officer Testifies Before U.S. Senate Commerce Committee

HP Vice President and Chief Privacy Officer Scott Taylor joined members of Congress and regulatory and industry representatives this week to discuss global privacy issues.

Today, Taylor testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation in support of federal privacy legislation. 

“HP recognizes that consumer trust is a precious commodity that must be protected through good stewardship and robust privacy programs,” said Taylor. “Federal legislation can establish a uniform national standard for organizational accountability and improved consumer protection. It’s a win for consumers and the industry as a whole.”

Specifically, Taylor shared details of HP’s Privacy Advisor tool, an internal program to better educate and guide employees about privacy requirements, risks and considerations.

Taylor’s panel, Company-Based Approaches to Protect Privacy, focused on industry best practices to protect consumer privacy and included representatives from industry, think tanks and academia.
