K Royal is a former registered nurse turned attorney with a PhD. She has over 30 years of experience in the health- and/or law-related fields. She was an RN when HIPAA went into force and as an attorney, naturally gravitated to health regulatory law, and by extension, HIPAA. She quickly moved into global medical devices out of Silicon Valley and into global privacy laws, being the first to submit a dual application for both controller and processor binding corporate rules to comply with European privacy laws. She is certified by the International Association of Privacy Professionals for Certified Internal Privacy Professional (CIPP) for both the US and Europe, a Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM), and as a Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP) – one of the first to reach such a qualification. Professionally, she serves on the board of several non-profit organizations, teaches privacy law at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, co-hosts the popular Serious Privacy podcast, and continues to work as a privacy practitioner. In addition, she frequently writes, speaks, and consults on various data protection, privacy, and cybersecurity for companies around the world.
In my own words . . .
Square peg. Square hole.
