Digital Media, Technology & Privacy




As one of four Certified Information Privacy Professionals (CIPP) within the department, Mr. Kibel advises clients in many industries regarding privacy and data security issues. With a client base that includes interactive companies, advertising agencies, media providers, data/security compliance companies and other commercial entities, Mr. Kibel provides counsel and advice on interactive and behavioral advertising, social media, mobile marketing, market research, affiliate marketing, data collection and usage, and other emerging products and services. His considerable experience in this area includes advising on internal information security policies, contractual obligations and requirements, security breaches and incident responses, audits, GDPR compliance, and other matters in connection with an organization’s collection, storage and use of data in all aspects of its business.

Notably, Mr. Kibel has been a participant in the Network Advertising Initiative’s (NAI) working group on the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), having been consulted early on in connection with the California privacy initiatives that resulted in the most comprehensive privacy legislation in the US being enacted this past October. The result has been an onslaught of CCPA compliance work guiding US and non-US clients, both proactively and reactively, on the impact of this complex and comprehensive legislation.

As an active participant in professional associations devoted to privacy and data security and a frequent speaker on the topic, he is a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals’ (IAPP) Education Advisory Board and is the Program Chair of the New York City Bar Association’s annual privacy and data security event. He has been General Counsel of the key industry trade group, The Performance Marketing Association, for the past five years.
