Jennifer Davis, an attorney and former software developer, will serve as Arkansas’ Department of Information Systems’ first chief privacy officer, StateScoop reports. Davis will join the state’s chief data officer, Richard Wang, to help ensure state agencies comply with privacy laws and to address the privacy challenges surrounding the state’s data-handling practices. Davis said, "The idea of protecting our data has always been important, but I’ve also seen firsthand the results of inadvertent disclosure of data and what it can do to somebody." She added, "We want the citizens to trust that we are protecting their data from inadvertent disclosure and doing the right things with it."
