About the Author’s Work

From Sanford’s chapter: “The new security landscape requires a deeper level of scrutiny, greater compliance, increased accountability, and more collaboration among our governments and the private sector. Encryption failures, the emergence of sophisticated hackers, and vast data collection by data brokers in our post-Snowden world exposed the complex correlation between security and privacy.”

“As regional security remains a concern for both the United States and European Union with the disturbing trend of terror attacks, governments are scrambling to protect their national interests in an inter-connected world—often at the expense of privacy and perhaps other individual freedoms. In a world that has become more commercially and professionally connected by modern technologies, drones flying overhead, apps tracking every move, and personal data flowing into cyberspace every second, the struggle to safeguard citizens will continue to intensify.”

About the Author

For almost a decade, Professor Adriana Sanford has distinguished herself by educating executives, thousands of college students, and the public at large on global threats and the dangers of corporate corruption.

She works with a broad range of global organizations to strengthen responsibility and builds foundations of trust and integrity in foreign markets. Last year, Sanford served on the advisory committee of the World Economic Forum’s Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI). The former Lead Counsel for Latin America of a Fortune 50 company is also a regular international television commentator, who reaches over 24 million viewers.

When Sanford found herself in peril for uncovering illegal schemes that went far beyond white-collar crime, she diligently protected her team, and then she turned her path towards teaching and educating others. With decades of international corporate law experience, Sanford serves as a keynote to leading think tanks, non-profits, and companies in the US, Mexico and Chile. A part-time faculty member at Loyola Marymount University, she teaches International Cyber Security Law and Business Law. She also teaches Business Law and Business Ethics as a member of the Seaver business team at Pepperdine University. Sanford has lectured at more than 100 industry conferences and forums.

Sanford is also an expert topic writer for the Institute for Supply Management’s Forward Scan corporate program and Inside Supply Management Magazine. Her latest articles include “Human Trafficking: The Global Economy’s Plague on Humanity” and “Balancing Security and Privacy in an Innovative World”. She is the coauthor of three books: Women in Security Changing the Face of Technology and Innovation; A Guide to Surviving Storms, Challenges, and Ethical Risks; and Ética Empresarial: Una perspectiva global.

Academically, Sanford holds multiple law degrees and postgraduate studies in global management. After obtaining a JD from Notre Dame Law School, where she attended the yearlong Concannon Programme of International Law at ND’s London campus, Sanford received a dual master of laws (LL.M.) degree in Taxation and International & Comparative Law from Georgetown University Law Center.  She also completed a two-year study abroad at Villa Maria Academy in Chile, before receiving her B.A. in political science from Arizona State University.
