The Hill reports U.S. Sens. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, and Patty Murray, D-Wash., have unveiled principles for consideration and inclusion in a comprehensive federal privacy law. The suggested baseline includes establishing data safeguards, invigorating competition, strengthening consumer and civil rights, and imposing accountability. "We believe that a comprehensive federal privacy and data security law is essential to hold institutions accountable, restore consumer trust, and protect our privacy," the senators wrote. "Under our framework, consumers would control their personal information, and corporations, [nonprofits], and political entities would be held to higher standards for when and how they collect, use, share, and protect our data."
