Fernando M. Pinguelo Strengthens his Role as a Leading Attorney in Cyber Security, Data Privacy, and Crisis Management Matters.

New York, New York, February 4, 2014 – Scarinci Hollenbeck is pleased to announce that Partner Fernando M. Pinguelo, chair of the firm’s Cyber Security & Data Protection group, has earned accreditation as a Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US) by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).  IAPP accreditation is the global standard for privacy and data protection professionals. Developed and launched by IAPP with leading privacy subject matter experts, the certification program is the first broad-based global privacy and data protection credentialing program, and remains the most sought-after and acknowledged credential in the profession. The CIPP/US credential demonstrates a strong foundation in U.S. privacy laws and regulations as well as an understanding of the legal requirements for the responsible transfer of sensitive personal data to and from the United States, the European Union, and other jurisdictions.

This accreditation further supplements Fernando Pinguelo’s role and impact in the areas of cyber security, data privacy and protection, complex business litigation, and crisis management matters. His practice and the matters he handles are addressing the very legal challenges being considered by courts as well as federal and state legislators.  His contributions in academic and policy-based settings are helping to define both the legal and business parameters that are present within the complex nature of cyber security and data privacy issues.  Pinguelo notes: “The complex and sometimes conflicting obligations imposed by data protection and privacy laws that apply at the federal and individual state levels – and globally – can be challenging for lawyers and their clients seeking to comply with clients’ privacy and data security obligations.  We will continue to be at the forefront of these issues and contribute meaningfully to the development of the law in these areas.”
