Choicepoint's "Privacy" Officer

Declan has some choice words about Choicepoint’s new Credentialling, Compliance and privacy officer, in “Sidelining Homeland Security’s privacy chief:”

DiBattiste sounded like she was replying to a pesky reporter when she wrote back [To TSA Privacy Officer Nuala O’Conner Kelly]: “TSA Public Affairs has no information in response to your request.”

How fitting, then, that DiBattiste landed a plum $500,000-a-year job last month with privacy-impaired company ChoicePoint.
