Dear Mr. Clark:
Intel Corporation hereby nominates David Hoffman to serve on the Commissions Advisory Committee on Online Access and Security.
David has been actively involved in online privacy for many years. Before joining Intel, David led Procter & Gambles online privacy efforts. At Intel, David leads a cross-divisional privacy compliance group. That group has responsibility for creating Intels privacy policies, analysis of infrastructure security, handling consumer complaints and access requests access, and developing privacy training for Intel employees.
David is Intels e-commerce law specialist. He is a frequent speaker on Internet legal issues. David participates on BBBOnlines steering committee and has managed Intels relationship with TrustE. His privacy duties are part of his overall responsibilities as lead counsel for the Intel business unit which oversees Intels infrastructure and e-commerce application development. This background will be instrumental in Davids participation in the Committees work to describe methods for providing adequate security for -- and reasonable access to -- personal information.
Intel is committed to protecting personal privacy. We believe that this interest can be most effectively and efficiently addressed where consumer choice is supported by truthful disclosures, industry self-regulation, and limited, technology-neutral government regulation. As part of our commitment to protecting personal privacy, Intel would like to assist the FTC in its consideration of fair information practices online by participating through Davids membership in this Committee.
If further information is needed, please feel free to contact me or Mr. Hoffman using toe contact information on the attached sheet.
