Tom Widgery

Silicon Valley Bank Financial Group
Sr. Director of Privacy and Information Governance
Santa Clara, CA, USA

Tom has been in the privacy industry for over 14 years, currently leading the Privacy and Information Governance program at Silicon Valley Bank Financial Group, a global financial services company with locations in US, Europe, Middle East, China & Hong Kong. In that role he is responsible for strategy and execution of privacy and information & security governance across the organization including everything from notice requirements, operational privacy by design, 3rd party security reviews, privacy & security policy and program development to information mapping, data classification and retention. Tom is a particular proponent of how security & information governance is foundational to privacy compliance. You can’t protect, provide or limit use of data unless you know where it is and what it is being used for. In the distant past Tom actually wrote code for both mainframe and online applications and has real world experience of engineering privacy on the development side, before it was cool. Tom holds a B.Sc in Environmental Science from the University of Sussex (UK) and is a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US) and Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM).
