National Privacy Legislation: A Bipartisan Call for Action on Data Privacy
Chinese hackers stealing technology from U.S. companies, Russian trolls interfering in our elections, U.S. tech leaders hauled before Congress to explain some new data breach or misuse of personal information – hardly a week goes by without Americans being bombarded with new revelations about assaults on our privacy.
As a new year and a new Congress begin, it's critical that we promote online privacy as a bipartisan priority that needs timely action.
This Capitol Hill policy briefing will cover the current privacy landscape, the need for clear privacy legislation and enforcement, what consumers and corporate leaders need from legislation, and what is currently in the works in Congress.
