California's model approach to privacy

04.01.2009
California has merged its Office of Privacy Protection with its State Information Security Office. The new Office of Information Security and Privacy Protection strives to unite separate-but-related privacy/security interests and promote effective cross-collaboration among professionals managing these areas.

Analyses of state privacy programs in Wisconsin, West Virginia, Ohio, and Arizona are presented, along with recommendations for future state privacy offices.
