Santa Clara County, like every other county in the United States, collects sensitive and personal information about its constituents. This information includes health, financial, voting and criminal records, most of it now in electronic format and online. In 2017, at Supervisor Simitian’s urging, the County committed itself to becoming a Privacy Center of Excellence to ensure private and secure data for County residents in its own operations and from outside breaching attempts. As part of this program, the County hired its first Chief Privacy Officer.
