Inaugural Meeting of the City’s Privacy and Data Retention Ad Hoc Advisory Committee – On Thursday, May 1, the first meeting of the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee overseeing the development of the City’s Privacy and Data Retention Policy will be meeting in Council Chambers, Oakland City Hall, 1 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza. The meeting will run from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. This committee was created by City Council action during the discussions earlier in the year about the Port Domain Awareness Center (DAC). The goal of the DAC is to improve readiness to prevent, respond to and recover from major emergencies in the Oakland region and ensure better multi-agency coordination across the larger San Francisco Bay Area. The goal of the Privacy and Data Retention Policy is to ensure there are safeguards to protect against potential misuse of the data or violations of individuals’ privacy rights and civil liberties. The meeting is open to the public. For questions about the Ad Hoc Committee, please contact Joe DeVries, Assistant to the City Administrator, at jdevries@oaklandnet.com or (510) 238-3083.
