Status of efforts to create a US federal privacy framework
Comments:
With the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation in effect and US states (e.g., California) adopting privacy regulatory regimes, there is more pressure than ever before for the federal government to adopt a modern privacy framework. Already, work is afoot on the Hill, as well as at key federal agencies like NTIA and NIST. This session should feature policymakers, as well as IGF-USA community member viewpoints, and would (1) educate IGF-USA attendees on the current status of federal privacy framework efforts and how they relate, and (2) provide key perspectives from government, industry, civil society, and other IGF-USA community stakeholders. • https://www.adweek.com/programmatic/sen-marco-rubio-introduces-federal-privacy-legislation-to-supersede-state-laws/https://www.sfchronicle.com/politics/article/California-law-could-be-Congress-model-for-13604213.phphttps://www.ajc.com/news/battle-lines-forming-ahead-looming-privacy-law-fight/BD23aBV4VamPNmzrXKX1QO/https://www.ntia.doc.gov/press-release/2018/ntia-seeks-comment-new-approach-consumer-data-privacyhttps://www.nist.gov/privacy-framework
