Campaign: Making Government Operations More Open

Endorse creation of statutory Chief Privacy Officers for each Cabinet Level Agency

With the increased collection of, and reliance upon, personal information in agency decision making it is critical that a countervailing voice for privacy be established at the Deputy or Under Secretary level. The Department of Homeland Security, the only Federal agency with a Presidentially appointed Chief Privacy Officer, has the visibility and necessary access to levers of power to have one of the most effective privacy programs of all agencies.
