David Hoffman Joins National Cyber Security Alliance Board of Directors

The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a nonprofit public-private partnership focused on cybersecurity awareness and education for all digital citizens, announced that David Hoffman, director of security policy and global privacy officer at Intel Corp., has joined the organization's board of directors.

Hoffman is a long-time expert on online privacy and security issues and has testified before Congress. He joined Intel in 1998 as an eBusiness attorney and founded Intel's privacy team in 1999. A year later he was appointed group counsel of eBusiness and director of privacy. He later relocated to Munich, Germany, in 2005 to serve as group counsel in the Intel European legal department while leading Intel's worldwide privacy and security policy team.

"David brings a strong understanding of legislative history behind privacy and security related issues and we look forward to leveraging his insight," said Michael Kaiser, executive director of the NCSA. "His diverse skill set and aptitude for international and worldwide privacy issues will further enhance our efforts to promote security and online safety for all global citizens. We welcome David to the board and look forward to working with him."

"The digital atmosphere is vast and requires a diverse team effort to protect users and combat cybercrime on a global basis," Hoffman said. "I look forward to sharing my breadth of knowledge about privacy and security from the legislative, consumer, and developer perspectives to increase online safety for all."

Hoffman participates in several other security and privacy related organizations. He was a founding member of the BBBOnLine Steering Committee and served on the TRUSTe board of directors from 2000 to 2006. He also served on the board of directors for the International Association of Privacy Professionals and held the role of treasurer. He holds the Certified Information Privacy Professional Certification and has lectured at law schools in the U.S., Europe and China.

Hoffman has a J.D. from the Duke University School of Law and also holds an A.B. from Hamilton College.
