PRIVACY LAW—U.S.September 9, 2011
In anticipation of the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, privacy experts have been weighing in on the balancing act of anti-terrorism efforts and privacy rights. In this Daily Dashboard exclusive, Alan Charles Raul, who previously served as the vice-chairman of the federal Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, offers insight into the need for the board and the concerns many privacy experts are raising about its dormancy since 2008. Given its lack of action to make the board operational, Raul notes, "Congress should really ask itself how seriously it takes its own privacy mandates."
