A Privacy Group Will Aid Card Issuers
Credit Card Management (09/00) Vol. 13, No. 6 p.14; Green, Meg

With privacy legislation remaining at the top of the congressional agenda, many credit card companies have hired a chief privacy officer to keep them up-to-date on regulatory developments. In addition, card issuers will have help from a newly created private, nonprofit association, called the Association of Corporate Privacy Officers (ACPO), which will represent a range of industries. The ACPO's mandate will include how to conduct a privacy risk assessment, how to create a privacy task force, how to review whether new products and services meet privacy standards before they are launched, and how to conduct an annual privacy audit. In addition, ACPO will address the lack of uniform education for privacy officers.
