Privacy & Data

As innovative technologies emerge with new, sophisticated data collection capabilities, protecting users’ privacy and ensuring security becomes increasingly important. CDT works to develop privacy safeguards for consumers through a combination of legal, technical, and self-regulatory measures. The European Union has been working to update its data protection rules since 2012 and progress has been made toward a new Data Protection Regulation. Areas of focus for CDT have been the Right to Be Forgotten, Pseudonomous Data, and the EU-US Safe Harbour agreement.
