Title: Senior Privacy Policy Adviser, National Institute of Standards and Technology
Agency: Department of Commerce

Lefkovitz made sure that NSTIC and its steering committees kept privacy at the heart of all their efforts -- and that the resulting standards could actually make the credential exchange work.
