U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., believes there is bipartisan agreement that a federal privacy law is a necessity, but a law alone is "not sufficient," Vox reports. To complement legislation, Warner proposed three measures that alleviate the privacy concerns surrounding big tech companies. A two-tiered transparency mechanism, more data portability and interoperability, and ending anonymity were among Warner's suggested actions. "I acknowledge these are tough things, but the notion that the status quo and the Wild Wild West is going to continue, it’s not," Warner said. "One of the things I’ve told the platforms is you guys are living on borrowed time. We are one event away from Congress overreacting."
