The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides benefits and services to the nation’s Veterans, and as a result, has become a highly automated and technology-dependent organization. The Office of Privacy, Information and Identity Protection is made up of three functional areas: Privacy, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and Data Breach Response. All operational functions in these areas revolve around one enterprise asset: data. The Office of Privacy, Information and Identity Protection’s objective is to protect and assure the privacy and integrity of specific data. Personally identifiable information (PII) and sensitive personal information (SPI) must remain protected, retained and disseminated in accordance with all applicable federal laws.
