I am a CIPP /US (Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States) and provide data security and privacy consulting. Are your business and your Web site in compliance with data protection laws?

I draft testimony and testify before legislative bodies. Lobby the government about an issue important to you.

I write legal and business articles and radio broadcasts. Is there a topic that you think needs more exposure?

I review RFPs and contract proposals.

Does your not-for-profit need fundraising and development, especially regarding researching available grants, writing grant proposals and crowdsouring?
