CIO Council Creates Privacy Guidance
DATA PROTECTION—U.S.March 26, 2010
The Federal Chief Information Officers Council has created a guidance document calling for privacy protections to be built into new or modified systems within the federal enterprise architecture, reports Federal Computer Week. According to the report, the guidance would establish "Privacy Control Families" that would be based on Fair Information Practice Principles. The document has been approved by the CIO Council's privacy committee, but awaits approval by the full council. Roanne Shaddox, a privacy specialist at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, provided an overview of the initiative at a trade show in Washington, DC, yesterday.
