Flo, a global women’s health app, appointed Sue Khan as its new Vice President of Privacy and Data Protection Officer. Khan joins Flo after spending four years at the digital-first health provider, Babylon Health, where she built and led the global privacy function to ensure compliance with legal requirements in the U.S., U.K., and Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. She has 17 years of experience as a lawyer, specializing in privacy and data protection, having also led the privacy initiatives for the mobile network O2 and the global entertainment company, Hasbro.
Khan says: “Only 14% of U.S. women feel that they can effectively protect their data. One of my goals is to help women feel informed and in control of their health data. My colleagues and I will create a better future for female health by clearly communicating with our users about data privacy rights in simple terms, so they can confidently use Flo without concern. My role is dedicated to protecting our users’ privacy rights and freedoms and safeguarding their most intimate health data.”
Khan joins Flo following the launch of the app’s Privacy & Security Advisory Board, achievement of ISO 27001 information security certification, and release of an anonymous mode (AM), which allows users to access the app without name, email or technical identifiers to protect sensitive reproductive health data in a post-Roe America.
