Privacy Man
Seal of the US Deparment of Homeland Security


"Hi, I'm the DHS Privacy Man. For the next 15 to 20 minutes, I want to talk to you about the importance of safeguarding personal information, such as Social Security numbers, that DHS may collect or store in its databases or in paper files. Congress and OMB have mandated privacy training for both employees and contractors at all federal agencies to help staff identify and mitigate privacy risks related to sensitive personal information, which I will define in a moment."
