Benjamin Huebner, a former privacy and civil liberties officer at the CIA, has been named the chief within the Office of Civil Liberties, Privacy and Transparency. He functions as civil liberties protection officer and chief transparency officer at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in his new role, ODNI said Wednesday.
Before working with the CIA, the law graduate functioned as intelligence counsel for the Department of Justice’s assistant attorney general for national security. Kristi Scott succeeds Huebner as the latter transitions from the CIA to CLPT.
The CLPT office works to incorporate civil liberties and privacy security into policies and activities within the intelligence community. This work intends to ensure the protection of civil liberties, privacy and transparency across IC operations.
