Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., has introduced the Privacy Bill of Rights Act, The Daily Dot reports. The rules would prohibit the discriminatory use of citizens’ data and mandate companies to “protect and secure” any data they possess. Under the bill, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission would require covered entities to designate at least one employee to “coordinate the efforts to comply with and carry out the responsibilities of the covered entity under this Act, including any request or challenge related to personal information.” The covered entity would have to make the privacy officer’s contact information publicly available. Markey’s rules also include a private right of action.
