Edtech company 2U hired a new C-level leader overseeing protection of personal information.

Katie Race Brin, the former chief privacy officer at the Federal Trade Commission, has left the government and has been hired as the CPO for the cloud-based learning platform, which partners with colleges to offer online degrees.

Company CEO Chip Paucek said Brin’s hiring comes as the company seeks to expand.

“2U has always taken privacy seriously and Katie’s expertise will only enhance our ability to navigate an increasingly complex and changing global privacy landscape,” Paucek said in a statement.

Brin served as the CPO at the FTC since Dec. 2014, and also worked as a senior advisor to the FTC Director and as a senior staff attorney from 2007 to 2014. Her work as a member of the Executive Committee of the Federal Privacy Council also brought her in close proximity to the White House and other high-level federal privacy officials. She was also the senior agency official for privacy and coordinated the FTC’s Breach Notification Response Team.

“Implementing robust privacy and security safeguards is important for any organization but particularly for a company like 2U, where the trust of its partners and their students is paramount,” Brin said in a statement. “2U clearly places a priority on privacy and protecting personal information. I look forward to working with my new colleagues, and our university partners and other stakeholders, to ensure the company continues to uphold the highest privacy standards as laws and regulations evolve and its business grows internationally.”
