Learning from Europe but looking beyond for privacy law


FPF’s CEO, Jules Polonetsky, recently published an opinion piece in The Hill that discusses the need for comprehensive federal privacy legislation. Jules explains:

Any legislation should also consider the increasingly sophisticated privacy tools that are emerging, including differential privacy to measure privacy risk, homomorphic encryption that can enable privacy safe data analysis, and many new privacy compliance tools that are helping companies better manage data. A law that will stand the test of time and successfully protect privacy rights while enabling valuable uses of data should include mechanisms to incentivize such technology measures.
