The Privacy Advisor | The Privacy Advisor Podcast special edition: Yesterday's House vote on 702 Related reading: The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Was 2017 just the amuse-bouche for 2018?


As we reported in the Daily Dashboard yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday morning to renew Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendments Act for six years. An alternative bill put forth by Reps. Justin Amash, R-Mich., and Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., was voted down. The alternative bill, which garnered support from liberal and conservative civil liberties lawmakers, would have required that the government get a warrant prior to searching through the data of American citizens. Prior to the vote Thursday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted out two conflicting posts about Section 702, prompting House Democrats to ask for a delay in the House vote. In this episode, IAPP Westin Fellow Lee Matheson, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, talks to Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, about what privacy pros should know about yesterday's vote and what it means for coming days.

    I certainly agree. We didn't really get to this in the podcast, but there's been very little coverage in U.S. news about the potential ramifications of 702 re-authorization re: the continued validity of Privacy Shield. I'm sure there's been plenty of closed door-lobbying on this, but I would have thought the private sector would be sounding the alarm a little more publicly, given what went down with Safe Harbor.
