US NTIA Privacy Request for Comments

Today, the United States Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) invited the public to comment on the Trump administration’s proposed approach to federal privacy policy.

This is a unique opportunity for privacy professionals to weigh in on the policies and laws that affect many of us and our work, not just in the United States of America, but worldwide.

Tick, tock! Comments are open until October 26, 2018.

A complete copy of the proposal is available from the Federal Register at https://www.ntia.doc.gov/files/ntia/publications/fr-rfc-consumer-privacy-09262018.pdf and more information is available on the NTIA website at https://www.ntia.doc.gov/federal-register-notice/2018/request-comments-developing-administration-s-approach-consumer-privacy

MIT has a great article on commenting on pending legislation here: http://mitcommlab.mit.edu/broad/commkit/public-comment-on-pending-legislation/

I’ll post my comments here in a follow on post once I assemble them.
