The non-profit hosts industry events and networking opportunities, provides a resource center, grants annual awards and developed and launched the only globally recognized credential programs for information privacy.

Nick Merker is a partner and co-chair of Ice Miller’s Data Security and Privacy Practice. His experience is unique, as he is only one of a handful of DSP lawyers in the country who can say they worked as a computer systems, network and security engineer for 10 years before practicing law. Nick’s technology background gives him the unique ability to bridge the gap between lawyers and technologists, often translating between the two disparate disciplines to resolve legal issues.
