In an article for The Hill, Internet Society Senior Director of Internet Trust Christine Runnegar writes that internet companies should actively take steps to develop better privacy practices, regardless of state or federal laws. By following nine points laid out in Runnegar’s “privacy code of conduct,” she encourages internet companies to take a stand on privacy and set an example for other data handlers. She writes, “As a society, we cannot sit by and shrug our shoulders when something bad happens, or just continue to move from privacy crisis to privacy crisis. It is time that we insist that internet companies provide genuine and lasting protections for our privacy.”
