Claria's CPO Named to Federal Privacy Committee

The new Department of Homeland Security committee will advise on security and privacy issues.

Claria chief privacy officer and former Federal Trade Commission attorney D. Reed Freeman was among those named to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee this week.

The appointment gives Claria’s CPO even more credibility and stature at a time when the adware company is struggling to break with its past. The company recently unveiled plans for its BehaviorLink network, an offering that displays ads on publisher sites rather than via the pop-up ads that have drawn criticism from publishers and consumers.

The Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee will advise the secretary and chief privacy officer of the DHS on policy, operational, and technology issues affecting privacy, data integrity, and data interoperability in DHS programs.

Also on the list of 20 committee members is James Harper, editor/executive director of Privacilla.org and director of information policy studies at the Cato Institute. Freeman and Harper will be among a panel of new members selected based on their expertise in privacy, security, and emerging technology, in the government, private enterprise, non-profit, and academic sectors.

“This committee will provide the department with important recommendations on how to further the department’s mission while protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information of citizens and visitors if the United States,” said Nuala O’Connor Kelly, chief privacy officer of the DHS, in a statement. “The diversity of the experience and perspectives represented by this committee will play an important role in advancing the national discourse on privacy and homeland security.”
