Barry Walters is the new chief Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act officer at the Securities and Exchange Commission.
“I am pleased to welcome Barry back to the SEC,” said the commission’s general counsel and senior policy director, David Becker. “Given the great importance of making sure investors receive the information they need, and handling sensitive information in a secure manner, I am confident his experience in these areas will serve the agency well.”
Walters served as FOIA/Privacy Act Officer at the SEC from 2001-2002, according to an SEC press release. He returns to government after several years in the private sector.
“It is a pleasure for me to return to the commission to serve in this important position,” Walters said.
