EPIC to Call For Comprehensive Overhaul of U.S. Privacy Law

In testimony before the US Congress, EPIC's Marc Rotenberg is expected to say that the recent decision of the European Court confirmed what everyone already knows, US privacy law is not adequate. "Our country suffers from an epidemic of data breaches and identity theft. And all the data indicates these problems are getting worse." EPIC, consumer allies, and privacy experts are urging the Congress to enact the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights, modernize the Privacy Act, create an independent privacy agency, and ratify the International Privacy Convention. "These changes will benefit consumers and businesses on both sides of the Atlantic."
