The Data Vault’s Michael Payton Named VP of Data Protection Association
We at The Data Vault are proud to congratulate Operations Manager Michael Payton on his appointment to Vice President of the Data Protection Association.
Michael’s term will run through 2016. The DPA is the premier trade association dedicated to electronic and media vaulting. The Data Vault is one of 29 Charter Members and the only in the region.
“With the ever-changing landscape of data protection, I feel it is imperative for service providers to take advantage of the opportunity to network with others in the industry,” Michael said. “The DPA is home to an impressive list of companies with global reach. The DPA has been an extremely valuable resource for The Data Vault, and I am honored to serve on the board for this organization.”
Membership to the group provides companies the opportunity to share market trends and industry best practices, and the association holds an annual conference which offers presentations from industry experts on topics such as increased security features and operational safeguards for handling electronic records. This year’s conference will be held Sept. 24-26 in Dallas.
The other DPA board members are: R Stephen Richards, Chris Kelley, Ken Schneider and Peter Komarkowski.
