In June 2010, President Mark Yudof convened the University of California (UC) Privacy and Information Security Steering Committee and charged it with reviewing existing privacy and information security policies, developing a new policy framework, and providing guidance to safeguard "protected" data.
The Committee issued its report early in 2013. Later that year, President Yudof concurred with the report and directed that each UC location designate a privacy official to broadly socialize privacy concepts. ANR has designated Administrative Policy and Business Contracts Director Catherine Montano as the ANR Privacy Official.
As also recommended by the Steering Committee's Report, ANR will form an ongoing location-specific Privacy and IT Security Board ("Board"). The Board will have the executive sponsorship of the ANR Vice President and Associate Vice Presidents, and will be structurally accountable to the ANR Executive Ethics & Compliance Risk Committee (ECRC). The Board will advise the Executive ECRC, which shall retain relevant decision-making authority. The Board may, however, independently implement uncontroverted, readily achievable opportunities for improvement in privacy and IT security compliance.
