Robin Campbell is a senior counsel and member of the firm's Privacy & Cybersecurity Group. She is also a member of the firm's Health Care Group. She focuses on the development and implementation of information management strategies for the handling of personal information. Robin provides a variety of privacy and security counseling, and has twice been seconded to clients to serve as their in-house privacy lead, once in the health care industry and once in the automotive industry.

Robin focuses on providing practical solutions for implementing privacy and security best practices. She covers both U.S. and international laws, including an in-depth knowledge of the EU Data Protection Directive and cross-border data transfer solutions. Robin has worked with clients to structure complex data consolidation plans and large outsourcing agreements. She drafts and negotiates contractual agreements concerning the use of personal and protected health information, security and confidentiality, as well as the privacy and security components of more general contractual agreements. Robin is also well versed in the pitfalls of workplace privacy and employee monitoring and has worked with clients to develop responsible and manageable policies. She also focuses on the myriad state security breach notification statutes and the HITECH breach notification provisions, advising clients both on safeguard protocols and response plans in advance of a breach and notification procedures and best practices after a security breach. Robin has advised and defended clients against enforcement actions brought by state attorneys general under state security breach notification laws and the new enforcement powers under HITECH, as well as enforcement actions and inquiries by other state and federal regulators stemming from security incidents.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Robin worked in Geneva, Switzerland, as a special consultant to Hewlett Packard, Europe when the European Data Protection Directive was in the early stages of implementation. She worked with a cross-functional task force to develop a global compliance strategy under both the EU Directive and the upcoming Safe Harbor requirements. The task force acted as a European advisory body on the new privacy legislation, a central point of contact for all questions related to privacy and data protection, and it promoted a detailed policy framework within the company for handling personal data in its daily business.

Robin speaks and writes frequently on current privacy and security issues.
