Mitchell S. Noordyke



Mitch Noordyke partners with clients to implement privacy and cybersecurity practices, protocols and compliance strategies. Leveraging a background in analytics and insights gained from a fellowship with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), Mitch helps companies that handle sensitive information adapt and thrive in an ever-changing landscape.

International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) Fellowship

After law school, Mitch completed a one-year research fellowship with the IAPP. In this role, Mitch conducted research and published thought leadership on the practical implications of the latest developments in the data privacy field. He developed an in-depth knowledge of state-level privacy law developments and created resources for privacy professionals on topics such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). He worked directly with the IAPP’s research director, general counsel and data protection officer, and delivered a presentation on the CCPA at the Europe Data Protection Congress in Brussels.

Personal Interests

Mitch is an avid sports fan of Minnesota’s professional teams and he is happy to discuss baseball analytics during happy hour. He also dons a Chelsea FC jersey on occasion. On the weekends he spends time with his wife; they can often be found wandering the aisles of the local farmers’ markets or trying a new restaurant.
