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, and the ability to stay in business is at stake.
Designed Privacy was created, first and foremost, to help business leaders like yourself understand cyber risk in your own terms, be confident in your approach to cybersecurity and data privacy, and leverage cyber risk as a value proposition for your business and customers.
We don’t simply mitigate risk — we help you extract value from risk

Designed Privacy believes that the only way companies can 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 leverage risk in a way that creates value to them and their customers.

That’s why we focus on digital wellness.  We don’t just look at ways to eliminate cyber and privacy risk, we work with you 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, he became 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 arose. Doug saw a need to connect a value chain between business strategy, cyber risk governance, privacy, and the human factors that 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.
