In an op-ed for The New York Times, Acxiom Chief Data Ethics Officer Jordan Abbott, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, CIPM, writes the U.S. should establish a national data broker registry to bridge the gap until a federal privacy law is established. A data broker registry can help consumers learn about how their data is used, as well as help to distinguish between legitimate entities and bad actors, Abbott states. “Increasing transparency — initially through a data broker registry and ultimately through a robust and balanced national privacy law — would help reduce the conflation of legitimate, regulated entities with unethical companies and criminals,” Abbott writes. In an op-ed for Newsweek, Former Privacy Commissioner of Canada Jennifer Stoddart explains how the U.S. can take lessons from her country as it develops a federal law.
