Without a doubt, ensuring privacy is at the of the Health and Human Services Department's priority list -- and privacy goes hand-in-hand with security.
HHS sees these two subjects as vital to successfully meeting its mission, says Mike Carleton, the agency's chief information officer.
Carleton is in his second tour with HHS and knows that when citizens or customers give information to the agency, agency officials need to ensure it's secured.
Security and privacy are actually a part of larger effort that includes architecture and a governance process that makes sure expectations are clear to everyone.
Carelton says because of the scale of HHS, obtaining agreement on the architecture and governance work is key to their success.
