New Members Added to US Privacy Board

New Members Added to US Privacy Board

Last Tuesday, it was reported that the White House will be adding two more members to the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB). Edward Felten and Jane Nitze, both of whom worked for the Obama administration, will be working in the newly revived federal agency.

A professor of Computer Science and Public Affairs at Princeton University, Edward Felten currently serves as the director of the Center for Information Technology Policy. He was also a former chief technologist of the FTC and deputy CTO under President Obama. Meanwhile, Harvard-graduate attorney Jane Nitze also worked for the Department of Justice under the Obama Administration, and is often highlighted as possessing bipartisan credentials.

Felten and Nitze will be joining two other members, PCLOB Chairman Adam Klein and Beth Collins, to make up a staff of four for the privacy and civil liberties agency.
