Pitt Scholar Named to Homeland Security Panel on Data Security

Lisa S. Nelson, associate professor at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh, was named to the Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

In discussing her committee duties Dr. Nelson states, “The committee tries to predict the types of problems before new technology is rolled out to the public. It is important to have a strong security program but also to learn how to make use of all the information that is available, all while protecting the foundational elements of civil rights and liberties.”
