Government Officials, Academia, and Advocacy Groups Say Time for US to Get Its Own GDPR

US Congress asked to develop an internet data privacy legislation similar to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to enhance consumer protections. The report was produced by the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO), a bi-partisan government agency that provides auditing, evaluation, and investigative services for Congress. ZDNet on Friday reported: “The House Energy and Commerce Committee, which requested the GAO report two years ago, has scheduled a hearing for February 26, during which it plans to discuss GAO’s findings and the possibility in drafting the US’ first federal-level internet privacy law. If the committee’s members would be to follow GAO’s conclusions, a GDPR-like legislation should be coming to the US.”
