DHS announces privacy committee meeting

Filed under: Privacy and Security — by Christian Beckner on February 14, 2006

From the Federal Register:

The DHS Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee (Committee) will be meeting on Tuesday, March 7, 2006, in the Polaris Room at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC 20004. The meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. and continue until 4:30 p.m. Although most of the meeting is open to the public, there will be a closed session between 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., in order to permit the Privacy Advisory Committee members to discuss administrative and planning items, including future meetings and a timeline for possible subcommittee reports to the full Committee.

At the meeting, the Acting Chief Privacy Officer will provide an update on the activities of the Privacy Office. The subcommittees on Emerging Applications and Technology, Data Sharing and Usage, Framework, and Screening will update the Committee on the work currently being conducted. In the morning and afternoon sessions, invited speakers will discuss how to foster information sharing while protecting privacy. An agenda will be posted on the Privacy Committee Web site at http://www.dhs.gov/privacy prior to the meeting.

This reminds me…it’s been 4 1/2 months since Nuala O’Connor Kelly resigned as Chief Privacy Officer. Will there be a new nominee soon?

Update (2/15): More information on the meeting available here.
