Last week, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation held a hearing on Consumer Perspectives: Policy Principles for a Federal Data Privacy Framework. Unlike previous hearings this year that only featured tech industry panelists, this hearing featured a panel of consumer privacy advocates, including:

  • Helen Dixon, Data Protection Commissioner, Republic of Ireland
  • Jules Polonetsky, Chief Executive Officer, Future of Privacy Forum
  • Jim Steyer, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Common Sense Media, and
  • Neema Singh Guliani, Senior Legislative Counsel, American Civil Liberties Union

There were few, if any, fireworks, which makes sense considering this was a panel of people who largely agree with each other on the big issues facing consumers and their privacy: Too many companies are collecting too much data that is unrelated to their product or service, a “notice and consent” regime does not protect consumers, and most importantly, Congress should allow the states that are already working on these problems to move forward with legislation.
