Name: Patricia Neuray
Job Title: VP Global Sales
How long have you worked at TRUSTe? 3 years
Tell us about your role at TRUSTe. I oversee our global efforts for new sales and renewals for our existing products such as assessments, certification and technology solutions, as well as our new Assessment Manager module for our Data Privacy Management platform. My team primarily focuses on large global organizations that have challenges dealing with a constantly evolving privacy landscape –both within the U.S. and around the world.
What do you think are the top privacy challenges for companies? Privacy has become much more complex and the ground is always shifting. There are constant challenges in keeping up with changing state and federal regulations within the U.S. in addition to navigating frameworks outside of the U.S. such as the proposed EU General Data Protection Regulation as well as keeping track of changes happening within emerging markets such as Asia, South America and Africa.
What do you think most people would be surprised to know about privacy? That it is never boring! There is always something new to learn and technology is going to be a big part of how companies manage it moving forward.
What do you like most about working at TRUSTe? We have a great culture with lots of smart, motivated people. As a result, we are enabling businesses to maximize the use of their data while respecting the end user’s right to transparency and choice.
What do you do for fun when you’re not working? I have a menagerie of animals at home including two dogs and two cats and love just being at home with them or taking the dogs for long walks in the hills or at the beach.
