Rodriguez Katitza - International Rights Director at Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Rodriguez Katitza  is International Rights Director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation ( http://www.eff.org ).  She concentrates on comparative policy and legal analysis of international privacy issues, with special emphasis on law enforcement, government surveillance, and cross border data flows. Her work in EFF's International Program also focuses on cyber security at the intersection of privacy, freedom of expression, and copyright enforcement. She is an advisor to the UN Internet Governance Forum (2009-2010), and a member of the Advisory Board of Privacy International. Before joining EFF, she was the Director of the International Privacy Program at the Electronic Privacy Information Center in Washington D.C., where she was responsible for coordinating and organizing the participation of global civil society in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Ministerial Meeting in 2008. That effort resulted in the creation of the Civil Society Information Society Advisory Council (CSISAC), a landmark achievement for civil society representation at the OECD. Katitza served as the liaison for CSISAC at the OECD from 2009 - April 2010. She was the Research Editor of Privacy and Human Rights Report, an international survey of privacy law and developments in 78 countries.
