Crystal Jones Appointed as ICF Data Protection Officer

Crystal Jones, currently the assistant general counsel and director at ICF, has been named data protection officer for the company’s Global Data Protection and ePrivacy program.

Jones will lead a data protection team that supports mandatory data privacy training for all employees and operates under ICF’s Office of General Counsel, the company said Friday.

Jones will oversee the implementation of supplier data protection assessments, serve as a contact person for regulatory bodies and manage efforts to comply with global regulatory frameworks such as California’s privacy legislation and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.

She has worked with Joe Dyer, ICF’s vice president and chief information security officer, as well as law firm DLA Piper LLP to ensure that the company is properly managing the data it handles.

Jim Daniel, executive vice president and general counsel, said he looks forward to the company’s continued efforts to integrate data privacy measures into its business delivery approach.

ICF noted that its data protection efforts will train employees to be accountable for data processing operations and enable them to use technologies that strengthen privacy including multi-factor authentication and encryption.
