The list of chief privacy officers in state and local government continues to grow, as the public sector increasingly looks to use data to drive leaner, more effective operations while respecting its obligation to safeguard the public’s sensitive information. Ted Cotterill occupies the position in the state of Indiana, where he also serves as general counsel for the state’s Management and Performance Hub.

At the annual National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) conference this week in San Diego, Cotterill talked about how his job intersects with some of the other important “C” roles in the state of Indiana. Not surprisingly, he works closely with CIO Dewand Neely, as well as the state Chief Information Security Officer Bryan Sacks, who serves alongside him on the Governor’s Cybersecurity Council.
