Former DHS privacy head moves to law firm

Mary Ellen Callahan, former chief privacy officer at the Homeland Security Department, joined the Jenner & Block law firm as a partner, the firm announced Sept. 4.

She will lead the firm's newly formed Privacy and Information Governance Practice. Jenner & Block is based in Chicago, but Callahan will work in DC.

Callahan joined DHS in March 2009, as head of its privacy office, the first statutorily required privacy office in any federal agency.

Callahan received Federal Computer Week’s Federal 100 Award in 2011 for her work on integrating cybersecurity, transparency and privacy at DHS.
