The unit of human health care OCR has decided its new director. The trump organization has selected a prior OCR advocate Roger Severino. He will now become the leader of HIPAA laws for the office of civil rights. The new director has joined the office of civil rights through the heritage ground’s Devos center of religion and public society, department of family, opportunity as well as community. He was working there as a director in the year 2015.
It is said that the formal letter for the hiring of new office of civil rights head is not yet issued. But, the office of Heritage foundation has cleared that Roger Severino is no more in their employees list. In addition to that, his name is added on the official website of HHS. A representative of office of civil rights has similarly confirmed the news that Severino will be leading the office. On the other hand, the new director himself has updated his profile on many social media websites. He has mentioned his new position in the office of civil rights as well.
The new director of the civil rights has an extensive experience and background in the field of civil rights. He also has a very good experience as hearing advocate for the unit of justice. He served there for almost seven years. He is also responsible for the implementation and practice of fair housing law, title ll as well as title VI in the act of civil right 1964. Severino also has a great experience with the legal counsel. He was involved in the becket trust for the religious freedom during the years of 2003 and 2008.
But, the point to ponder here is that in this list, there is no experience related to the security and privacy issues of the people. He will be dealing in this field for the very first time during his professional life.
