Federal 100: Steven R. Muck

Name: Steven R. Muck
Title: Director, Privacy and Information Sharing, Office of the CIO
Agency: Department of the Navy

Privacy protector. Muck has championed efforts to reduce the use of Social Security numbers as the primary administrative identifier of Navy Department employees, including civilians, military personnel and government contractors. Limiting the reliance on this identifier helps protect employees against the growing problem of identity theft and fraud. He is also responsible for ending the practice of requiring Pentagon visitors to write or say their SSN for identification when checking in at the visitor center, which now has secure keypads for visitors to type their SSNs. "This is Steve's passion," said Kelly Fletcher, the department's acting CIO. "He works the issue in his spare time."
