Hello, I’m Nalini Indorf Kaplan. I’m an ethicist, systems thinker, management consultant and a bit of a tech nerd. I’m also the woman behind the websites, ReThinkPrivacy.com and CultivaPartners.com. And I have a wonderful "day job" as the Director of Enterprise Customer Relationship Management for the University of Colorado.
This website is the home of my mission to bring greater awareness and harmony between people and technology. To do that, I believe we must address matters of trust between us. This means answering important questions such as, “How do we return to our humanity in the face of technology and data analytics applications that continually violate our trust and social norms, especially in light of advancements in robotics and artificial intelligence?” Or more basically, “How do we practice safe internet?” or "How do I not succumb to the "Tech Big 5" scooping up everything about me?!"
My quest is to provide frameworks, education and toolkits that empower our humanness and help us use technology and data responsibly and respectfully so that we:
- foster a society of empathetic consciously connected interdependent people
- retain our agency and personal power
- act with trustworthy intention
- deepen connections and relationships
- develop information ethics policies and practices - and laws - that harmonize the wellbeing of society, doing so without sacrificing our society for commercial interests.
What I have laid out is a monumental endeavor that requires many people, patience and time. I seek to empower small to medium organizations, clergy and spiritual communities and solo practitioners with privacy and security awareness and skills. What I bring to this mission is my experience in customer relationship management, ethics, chaplaincy - yup I’m a rabbinic chaplain and spiritual director – and for the last ten years, a focus on privacy, data management and governance.
I currently teach workshops, for example, on Practicing Safe Internet and the Fundamentals of Digital Privacy and consult on privacy programs. I love to research and then turn my findings into understandable step-by-step guides and courses. Since the world of privacy, security and technology are evolving so quickly, I have invested in learning laws and best practices and earning certifications in Privacy Management and Privacy Technology. I have chronicled my journey to adopting more effective privacy and security practices and would be honored to share what I have learned to help you in your journey.
The primary place that I share this information is through my newsletter. You can sign up below. You'll only get information on how to deepen trust and improve your systems by adopting privacy and security practices to protect yourself and the people you serve. Nothing unexpected or disrespectful.
If you're ready to learn how to bring your systems in line with your values of trust, respect and agency, then enter your email address below or book a time with me on the calendar. I offer a complimentary 30 minute call or a website security assessment for small organizations.
