Kantara Initiative formally launched

Great news from yesterday; the Kantara Initiative (KI) has been formally launched, with the Board of Trustees and the Leadership Council established and in place, and a number of working groups either already chartered or awaiting approval of submitted charters.

As you probably recall, I’m currently engaged by the Liberty Alliance, which is one of 13 Trustee Members of Kantara, to define and scope the role of Director of Privacy and Public Policy for the new organisation. As part of that work, I’m also setting up a Privacy and Public Policy Work Group to reflect the critical importance of those two topics to Kantara’s work.

More details in due course… in the meantime, here’s the announcement on the KI blog.
