Infamous US spy agency the NSA is looking to appoint a Civil Liberties & Privacy Officer.
The challenging position is an internal posting, aimed at potential candidates who already work at the top secret spy agency. The new role parcels separate responsibilities of NSA’s existing Civil Liberties and Privacy (CL/P) protection programs in a single job function, as job ad 1039797 explains.
The NSA Civil Liberties & Privacy Officer (CLPO) is conceived as a completely new role, combining the separate responsibilities of NSA’s existing Civil Liberties and Privacy (CL/P) protection programs under a single official. The CLPO will serve as the primary advisor to the Director of NSA for ensuring that privacy is protected and civil liberties are maintained by all of NSA’s missions, programs, policies and technologies.
