Rep. Del Bene's Information Transparency and Personal Data Control Act
would create a national data privacy standard to protect our most personal information and bring our laws into the 21st Century. Currently there is no federal data privacy law, resulting in states pursuing their own consumer privacy policies. However, in our digital world, a patchwork of different state laws will lead to confusion for people and businesses. The bill protects personal information including data relating to financial, health, genetic, biometric, geolocation, sexual orientation, citizenship and immigration status, Social Security Numbers, and religious beliefs. It also keeps information about children under 13 years of age safe.
The Future of Privacy Forum
(FPF) brings together industry, academics, consumer advocates, and other thought leaders to explore the challenges posed by technological innovation and develop privacy protections, ethical norms, and workable business practices. Through research, publications, educational meetings, expert testimony, and other related activities, FPF works with organizations and governments to shape best practices and policies, in the United States and globally.
