The National Association of Attorneys General has elected Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler president during its summer meeting. Gansler announced a new initiative for the organization -- "Privacy in the Digital Age" -- that will “bring the energy and legal weight of this organization to investigate, educate and take necessary steps to ensure that the Internet’s major players protect the privacy of online consumers while balancing their legitimate business interest.” Recently AG Gansler met with consumer and privacy advocates at a meeting hosted by the Privacy Coalition. And earlier this year, the organization sent a letter asking Google for a meeting to discuss the company’s plans to consolidate the personal information of users of Google’s products and services.
