PRIVACY+ Committee Meets

December 12, 2018

Among the many new initiatives of the i-SIGMA Board of Directors is the creation of a committee charged with reviewing and making recommendations for improving PRISM International’s PRIVACY+ Certification. Up to then, the program had been managed by the PRISM Board of Directors. While the PRIVACY+ Committee may eventually turn to promotional and educational aspects of the program, its initial priority is maximizing its relevance in fulfilling clients’ regulatory due diligence obligations.
The committee held its first meeting this past Tuesday, Dec 11, and includes:

  • Jim Beran (Gilmore Services)
  • Tom Dumez (PRIME Compliance)
  • Michael Fruchter (Total Records Information Management)
  • Michael Payton (The Data Vault)
  • Jason Teliszczak (JTEnvironmental Consulting, Inc.)
  • Andrew Ysasi (VCR)

PRISM International staff and i-SIGMA co-Presidents Angie Singer Keating and Christopher Jones also participated.
“Credible, relevant certifications are becoming an integral part of vendor selection due diligence,” said i-SIGMA CEO Bob Johnson. “The world desperately needs such a standard for media storage and PRIVACY+ is it’s best hope.”
The committee is still accepting members. Those interested should contact Sara Berntgen
