John Isaza, Esq., FAI
John Isaza Esq. FAI is one of the country’s foremost experts on privacy, information management, electronic discovery, and legal holds. He has developed privacy, information governance, and records retention programs for some of the most highly regulated Fortune 100 companies, including related regulatory research opinions. His clients range from the Fortune 100 to startups, the latter of which he has served also as outside General Counsel.
