"HID Global takes its leadership position in our industry seriously and that position demands that we actively address the privacy implications that may arise from the use of our technology," said Steve Wagner, chief operating officer, HID Global.

"Kathleen's certification as an information privacy professional underscores our commitment."

Carroll, who has also recently been elected to The Smart Card Alliance Identity Council steering committee, uses her background in developing communications strategy and materials to help HID solidify its position as the recognized leader in addressing smart card technology-related privacy concerns.

"HID Global recognises the need for identity management solutions that, first and foremost, address the privacy impact those solutions may have," said Carroll.

"We want to promote the responsible use of our technology and deliver privacy-sensitive solutions if personal information resides on the identification document."
