Cynthia Larose – Chair of the Privacy & Security Practice Group at Mintz – was named by the National Diversity Council as one of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Technology for 2016. Honorees are women serving as top leaders in their organizations and professions, who maintain a record of accomplishments in areas of expertise, operate with the highest integrity, demonstrate a commitment to corporate citizenship, and serve as effective role models to inspire the next generation of female professionals.
“This is a well-deserved award for Cynthia Larose,” says Michael L. Fantozzi, Division Head of the firm’s Corporate, Tax, Private Client, and Immigration Sections. “She has been at the forefront of technology, particularly as it relates to privacy and data security, for much of her career, and has earned a national reputation in this rapidly evolving and critically important area of law.”
Ms. Larose is Chair of the firm’s Privacy & Security Practice and a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP). She represents companies in information, communications, and technology, including e-commerce and other electronic transactions. She counsels clients through all stages of the “corporate lifecycle,” from start-ups through mid- and later-stage financings to IPO, and has broad experience in technology and business law.
Ms. Larose has extensive experience in privacy, data security, and information management matters, including state, federal, and international laws and regulations on the use and transfer of information, behavioral advertising, data security breach compliance and incident response, data breach incident response planning, as well as data transfers in the context of mergers and acquisitions and technology transactions.
This honor will be presented at the Top 50 Most Powerful Women in Technology Awards Dinner hosted by the California Diversity Council on October 13 at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara in Santa Clara, CA.
