Northrop names new corporate privacy exec

Northrop Grumman has tapped John Kropf to be corporate privacy executive.

As corporate privacy executive, Kropf will lead and execute the company’s global privacy strategy and data protection programs. He will also advise the business on initiatives related to collecting, use and disclosure of personal information, Northrop Grumman said in a release.

The company believes data privacy to be an increasingly complex global concern, said Mark Caylor, corporate vice president and president of Enterprise Services.

Before joining Northrop Grumman, Kropf served at Reed Elsevier as deputy chief counsel for Privacy and Information Governance. He has also held senior positions at the Homeland Security and State departments.
