About Us

 

 

 

We speak your language
All too often, technology cloaks itself in jargon, acronyms even sci-fi allusions.  What happens is that the technology folks and the business leaders talk past each other.
When it comes to cyber risk, however, that’s not good enough.  Not when the balance sheet, reputation, the ability to stay in business is at stake.
Designed Privacy was created, first and foremost, to help business leaders like yourself to understand cyber risk in their terms, be confident of their approach to cybersecurity and data privacy and to leverage cyber risk as a value proposition for their business and customers.
We don’t simply mitigate risk — we help you extract value from risk
Designed Privacy believes that way companies extract value from risk is by taking a human-factored approach to the organization’s culture, processes and behaviors related to risk.  In this way, organizations are best prepared to understand how they can be best set up to leverage risk in a way that creates value to them and their customers.

That’s why we focus on digital wellness.  Not looking at ways to eliminate cyber-security and privacy risk but to understand that risk and to frame it within the context of the businesses value offerings.

The Designed Privacy Team

Doug Kreitzberg, Founder & CEO

Doug came out of the insurance world initially as a software developer for database marketing and administration systems ultimately as CEO of USI Affinity (2004-2018), an insurance brokerage focused on affinity programs for the professional, alumni and consumer markets.  As his own organization and his clients began to deal increasingly with cybersecurity threats,  the complex issues involving privacy and the lack of effective dialogue between technology and business leadership, Doug saw a need to connect a value chain between business strategy, cyber risk governance, privacy and the human factors which support a resilient cybersecurity culture.  This vision lead to his formation of Designed Privacy.

Doug is a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals and is both a Certified Information Privacy Manager and a Certified Information Privacy Practitioner (US and EU).  An alumnus of the BJ Fogg Behavior Design Bootcamp, Doug has applied behavior-design principles to security awareness and governance.  Doug  is also a founding member of the Stanford Peace Innovation Network and is passionate about the application of technology to empower and protect individuals, communities and the social artifacts that uniquely define us.
