The Senate on Tuesday confirmed President Barack Obama nominee David Medine as chairman of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB). This ends a two-year process and finally allows the PCLOB to go forward “at full strength,” said Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT). However, questions remain as to the jurisdictional and scope-of-authority issues that Medine and the agency must decide. Editor's Note: Look soon for former White House Deputy Chief Technology Officer Daniel Weitzner to present commentary on what the "now-living" PCLOB will mean for the larger privacy community in a post for the IAPP's Privacy Perspectives.
