MySpace Promotes Mardosz To Chief Privacy Officer

MySpace announced yesterday Jennifer Mardosz as their new Senior Vice President and Chief Privacy Officer effective immediately. MySpace appears to be taking a proactive role by promoting a MySpace veteran and heavy hitter like Mardosz to the front lines leading the Safety, Security & Privacy teams where she will be responsible for evaluating various impacts of privacy laws and policies for MySpace.

Before working in social networks, Mardosz once served as Corporate Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer at Qwest Communications and is a Certified Information Privacy Professional with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). She even held an active role with the United States Attorney’s office of Colorado, helping lead prosecution on internet cases dealing with crimes against children.
