Survey Topic

Working title: Which national privacy strategy should the US adopt?

Working Description: With California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 and the EU’s General Data Protection applying pressure from home and abroad, there is a push for the US government to adopt a modern, comprehensive privacy framework. This occurs at a time when large Internet platforms have come under fire for their collection, use and protection of their users’ data, along with growing concerns about government surveillance. As we get closer than ever to a national privacy regime, it is important to consider the implications of the possible frameworks on the broader issue of data governance and impact of businesses large and small.
