DHS Privacy Office Continues to Embed Robust Privacy Protections at DHS

I am pleased to present the Privacy Office’s 2014 Annual Report to Congress, highlighting our achievements during the past year, from July 2013 to June 2014.

In its first decade, the Privacy Office worked to create an environment where neither privacy nor security were compromised, but merged in a manner that keeps the country safe and honors the principles on which this country was founded. As a result, privacy is now firmly embedded into the lifecycle of all DHS programs and systems from the onset, and our office plays a critical role in informing Departmental policy, and ensuring effective privacy protections.
