Privacy and data protection issues touch dozens of stakeholders across the U.S. government. This infographic is designed to help privacy professionals understand the myriad of entities involved in setting policy and enforcing privacy rules across the three branches of the federal system. It is designed to complement the IAPP European Institutions Privacy Stakeholder Map. For each relevant office, the graphic provides an explanation of its relevance and areas of responsibility along with current leadership at the staff and political levels. The graphic is focused on policymaking and enforcement, so it does not include the hundreds of privacy offices across the U.S. government involved in implementing government privacy standards. Such offices exist in all agencies and political units.
