CDT Proposes New Privacy Framework for Federal Government

CDT unveiled an in-depth proposal to update the federal Privacy Act and related federal privacy policy to address the challenges of the digital age. The announcement coincided with the release of the federal Information Security and Privacy Advisory Board’s own report recommending changes to government privacy rules. CDT is also encouraging the public’s participation in helping craft privacy legislation via an interactive "wiki." The "wiki" allows anyone to read any part of the bill, change the language, provide feedback or simply open a discussion on any provision of the bill. CDT will edit and moderate this open process and, if appropriate, incorporate suggestions in the final bill it submits to Congress.
