DHS Privacy Advisory Committee meeting today

Filed under: Privacy and Security — by Christian Beckner on December 6, 2005

The DHS Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee held its quarterly meeting today in DC. The agenda is found here, and some initial press reports about it from CNet and Gov Exec are now on the web.

Update: And in a related note, Reuters reports today on the DHS leadership’s response to the 9/11 PDP critique of passenger screening, with DHS Deputy Secretary Michael Jackson commenting:

“I am going to say very bluntly that DHS (Department of Homeland Security) started down this road to work through the screening issues. They are tremendously complex and we drove the truck into a ditch,” Jackson told an event in Brussels.

“We have to pull it out of the ditch, we have cleaned it up and we are putting it back on the road and we are driving it where it needs to go,” he said during a trip to Europe to meet European Union counter-terrorism officials.
