Marshall Wall, Managing Partner of Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP, has been appointed to serve on the Privacy and Information Security Law Specialty Committee of the State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.

This new committee was created to launch a new specialty certification based on the national Certified Information Privacy Professional-US (CIPP/US) training program and exam standards set by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). The committee will use the IAPP standards to create a new exam to test applicants on state, federal and international law as it applies to privacy issues.

The certification program will make it easier for clients and attorneys to find privacy attorneys within the state.

Marshall’s term began in April 2017.
