Annie Boustead researches legal and policy issues related to electronic surveillance, cybersecurity, privacy, and drug policy. She is particularly interested in empirically studying law enforcement surveillance, and evaluating the impact of policies regulating this surveillance. She has a Ph.D. from the Pardee RAND Graduate School, where her dissertation focused on the interplay between commercial data collection and law enforcement surveillance. While completing her Ph.D., she was an assistant policy analyst at RAND, working on projects related to electronic surveillance, cyber security, and drug policy. She also has a J.D. from Fordham University School of Law.

As Indiana’s Cybersecurity Program Director, Chetrice Mosley-Romero works collaboratively with public and private stakeholders to administer the development and implementation of the state’s cybersecurity strategy and policy through the Governor’s Executive Council on Cybersecurity. Prior to her current role, she was the Executive Director of External Affairs for the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission where she led the public relations, policy, and consumer affairs divisions. Additionally, Mosley-Romero oversaw the Commission’s Continuity of Operations Plan and emergency management role with Indiana’s Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) Emergency Operations Center. She also served as a Steering Committee member and advisor to IDHS as the agency developed and implemented the first-of-its-kind Crit-Ex tabletop and operational exercise. Before her role at the Commission, she worked for the Indiana Department of Revenue where she was the Public Relations Manager over several strategic initiatives including the launch of Indiana’s Identity Theft Protection Program. An award-winning professional, Mosley-Romero has provided public relations and strategic consultation to a number of state agencies and organizations.

As deputy director and CIO of the Indiana Business Research Center, Carol Rogers directs its information systems and services, overseeing the development of websites, publications, training, research projects and other services. She sits on the boards of the national Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) and the Indiana Geographic Information Council, and serves as the Governor’s Census Liaison.

She works extensively with economic developers, government officials and businesses throughout Indiana and the nation, providing them with economic and demographic information for and about Indiana and its localities. These data are shared through publications produced by the IBRC research staff, web services, training, consultation and analysis.

Under her direction, the Center’s award-winning interactive web service, STATS Indiana, has become one of the most-used public data sites in the nation, along with its sister site, STATS America.

Significant “big” data collection and state administrative record integrations projects were undertaken as part of the Center’s Information for Indiana initiative. The workforce intelligence system was built in collaboration with the state workforce and higher education agencies and was among the first in the nation (starting in the mid-2000s) to integrate employment records with higher education records; and Indiana Gateway for Government Units, a collection and dissemination platform built by the IBRC to support the digital reporting of state-required finance, tax and other local information in collaboration with key state agencies.

There is some life beyond data—Rogers is a mother and mistress to a rescued stray, Ginsberg; avid reader and biker; past PTA president; lifetime member of the Girl Scouts of Indiana (an award given for her volunteer demographic work for that group); and uses her off-time for other volunteer activities to fulfill her need to serve.
