With the change in U.S. presidential administrations set for noon Eastern time Jan. 20, there will be a shift in political appointees across the federal government. The same goes for Department of Homeland Security Chief Privacy Officer Dena Kozanas, who will leave her post after serving as chief privacy officer since March 2020. "In the DHS Privacy Office and in privacy programs across the government," she writes, "we faced the double challenge of unprecedented changes to our operations combined with an expanded need for us to engage our colleagues and ensure that privacy protections were a central concern as we took a leading role in launching new operations to protect community health in the wake of a pandemic." Kozanas looks back on her time as CPO to review the challenges faced while maintaining fidelity with the department's privacy framework.
