Privacy is a fundamental human right. For too long, Americans’ digital privacy has varied widely, hinging on the technologies and services we use, on the companies that provide those services, and on our capacity to navigate confusing notices and settings. It’s time for Congress to pass legislation providing comprehensive protections for personal information. To advance this dialogue, CDT has put forth a draft federal privacy bill for discussion.

In this chart, we highlight how our proposed privacy bill compares to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
