Robert Gellman
Privacy and Information Policy Consultant

419 Fifth Street SE
Washington, DC 20003

I have been involved with privacy issues for over 40 years. I worked on privacy at a federal agency in a legal capacity. I worked on Capitol Hill as legislative staff for 17 years. Since 1995, I’ve been a consultant, assisting large and small companies, trade associations, non-profit and advocacy organizations, U.S. government agencies, and foreign governments to develop, implement, and maintain policies for personal privacy and fair information practices. Specialty areas include privacy policy for health (including HIPAA), for the Internet and Internet websites, for the homeless (HMIS) and missing persons, and for non-profit organizations. I also have considerable experience with freedom of information policy and other information policy subjects.

I help organizations that want to understand privacy policy and law or that seek to implement reasonable and balanced approaches to privacy, data protection, and related concerns.

If you’ve come here looking for my history of Fair Information Practices, go to the Resources page. It should be one of the top three items.
