Perspectives on Privacy: A Survey and Snapshot of the Growing State Chief Privacy Officer Role

Compared to a private company or even any other level of government, the need to focus on privacy at the state level is significant. The amount of personal information citizens provide to their state outweighs anything a citizen provides to any one company. Because of this, we have seen number of states who have hired a chief privacy officer increase rapidly over the last several years. This NASCIO research provides a snapshot of the state chief privacy officer position, the background of CPOs, what they do in their roles, how the role is administratively structured and their advice for states interested in creating the position.
