The General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer oversees the EOTSS legal team, the e-discovery team, and the privacy program. The legal team provides counsel and guidance to EOTSS’s executive and senior leadership on all legal matters affecting the office.
The legal team also provides advice and guidance to the governor’s legal office, and to other secretariats and agencies on technology-related matters, including privacy, e-discovery, nondisclosure agreements, information governance, and record retention and access issues, among others.
The e-discovery team provides essential e-discovery discovery services internally to EOTSS and as a service provider to executive branch and independent agencies.
The privacy program focuses on the statutory mandate to “promote privacy and security in the use and dissemination of sensitive data, and to [facilitate] resolution of concerns regarding privacy and security in the use of data” (M.G.L. c. 7D, s. 4B). The privacy program works closely with the EOTSS legal, risk, data, security, digital, and contract management teams.
