Information Technology Industry Council President Dean Garfield called for national privacy legislation following the passing of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, Bloomberg reports. The president of the group representing Google, Microsoft and other tech companies said federal privacy laws will help avoid issues with states having their own differing rules. "You don’t want fragmentations among states," Garfield said. "What I would suggest is moving quicker and trying to come up with certain standards and norms that are broadly applicable." Garfield said the ITIC will speak with the U.S. Department of Commerce to discuss a "paradigm around data and data privacy."
