Antón Featured by NC State SPIA as a Faculty Leader in Public Policy

Dr. Annie Antón, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, is among five faculty featured as leaders in Public Policy by the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) in a brochure released recently by the school. 

The SPIA is a new school at NC State University, announced in July 2006 and officially launched on March 29, 2007.  It is housed within the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and encompasses the departments of political science and public administration, the international studies graduate program, and the public safety leadership initiative.  . 

The school operates in an interdisciplinary fashion, crossing academic boundaries among political science, public administration, and other areas on campus to address policy issues of public concern.

The SPIA will serve as the home to approximately 1,000 undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and training-program students preparing for careers in public service.

Dr. Antón has achieved national recognition for her work on privacy and legal compliance in software-based information systems, homeland security, and her analyses of recent publicized security breaches.  She serves on the US Department of Homeland Security Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee, the US Association of Computing Machinery (USACM) Public Policy Executive Committee, and co-authored the USACM Privacy Principles.
