Report Details CPO, CISO Roles
PRIVACY—U.S.July 15, 2011
An Infosecurity report details the expectations for the new chief privacy officer (CPO) and chief information security officer (CISO) hired by Texas Comptroller Susan Combs following a data breach in April that exposed personal information of 3.5 million state residents. Recently named CPO Elizabeth Rogers will oversee "designing and updating privacy standards; performing risk reviews to identify exchanges of personally identifiable information between the agency and other entities or individuals; identifying new privacy risks and developing mitigation strategies, and collaborating with chief privacy officers at the state and federal level on privacy-related initiatives," the report states, while CISO Jesse Rivera will oversee a range of technology security and risk assessment factors. Editor's note: Susan Combs will be a keynote speaker at the IAPP Privacy Academy in Dallas, TX, in September.
