Sara H. Jodka (CIPP-US) is an attorney with Dickinson Wright PLLC in Columbus, Ohio. She is a certified privacy professional by the International Association of Privacy Professionals and is the leader of her firm’s Cybersecurity Practice Group for the United States.
Sara works with companies in wide-ranging industries to ensure that they are not only meeting their regulatory compliance requirements, whether it be HIPAA/HITECH, FERPA, COPAA, GLBA, GDPR, etc., but to also ensure that their privacy policies and protocols align for their business needs and keep them out of the crosshairs of the Federal Trade Commission and other enforcing agencies. Sara’s practice has also always been on the forefront of social media law. She acted as an observer to the Uniform Legislative Commission in drafting the Social Media Privacy in Employment and Higher Education Uniform Law and was the key speaker in identifying for the Committee the various social media platforms, how they work, how users interact, how they communicate with other sites and among various devices, and, most importantly, how they collect and use user data.
Sara regularly works with companies to respond to issues, including data breaches; to proactively develop policies and procedures to adequately prepare for and respond to security/privacy issues; and in training staff on the proper management of data and corporate privacy issues.
