In a post for the American Civil Liberties Union, Senior Legislative Counsel Neema Singh Guliani and Senior Policy Analyst Jay Stanley write that while there is still much to do in terms of developing federal privacy legislation, there is a growing consensus on what the baseline bill must include. They outline issues concerning transparency requirements, consumer control of data portability, and data breach notification standards as points that have garnered support. Despite some common ground, they foresee issues arising over the preemption of state protections, how privacy requirements will be enforced, and the limits on the use and retention of information. Editor's Note: Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP, recently reported on the push for a U.S. privacy law in The Privacy Advisor.
