Mason Clark is an attorney in Ice Miller’s Litigation and Data Security and Privacy Practices.

Mason focuses his practice on consumer data privacy, data breach incident response, and cybersecurity risk consulting. He frequently consults with multinational organizations on state, national and international data privacy compliance, including compliance with state data breach notification laws and regulations, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and the European Union General Data Protection (GDPR). He has authored several articles on data privacy issues while at Ice Miller, and has been published in Bloomberg Law, Pratt’s Privacy & Cybersecurity Law Report, and Inside Indiana Business. He has also spoken on data security and privacy issues at several conferences and CLE presentations featuring state and national organizations. He recently founded the inaugural Data Security & Privacy section for the Indiana State Bar Association. 

Mason earned his juris doctor, cum laude, and a Master of Science in cybersecurity risk management from Indiana University Maurer School of Law. He was a member of the inaugural graduating class for the IU Cybersecurity Risk Management program, in which he studied cybersecurity through a multidisciplinary approach with both theoretical and technical training. In the program, Mason learned three programming languages and security software programs, and his technical training has provided a unique perspective when responding to dozens of data breaches and cybersecurity incidents.

While a student at Maurer, he competed in the Sherman Minton Moot Court Competition, finishing as a Quarterfinalist. He and his colleagues also worked with the Indianapolis Legal Aid Society to bring legal literacy to underfunded Indianapolis public schools and presented their project at the Access to Justice Symposium in 2016. He also presented his capstone projects at the “Making Democracy Harder to Hack” conference with cybersecurity professionals from IU and Australian National University in Washington, D.C., and a FinTech conference at Consumer Reports in Yonkers, New York.

Before joining Ice Miller, Mason also interned with the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, working in the Drugs, Guns and Gangs Unit, and the Indiana Department of Transportation, gaining significant experience in public-private partnerships and writing legislative proposals for innovative technologies.

A lifelong Hoosier, Mason graduated from Indiana University with a bachelor’s degree in history with an American history concentration and minors in political science and criminal justice. During his undergraduate career, he captained the IU Mock Trial team and served as a corrections officer with the Johnson County Department of Corrections. Before law school, Mason also worked as a truck driver and a security officer with the Indiana University Police Department.

Outside the office, Mason enjoys fishing, riding motorcycles, and cheering on the Boston Red Sox.
