At European Parliament EPIC Urges Support for Comprehensive Data Protection Framework

Appearing before the European Parliament in Brussels, EPIC President Marc Rotenberg urged the adoption of a comprehensive framework to protect the flow of personal data between the United States and the European Union. Citing the growing concern about the misuse of sensitive data and the absence of effective legal remedies, Mr. Rotenberg said it was time for the US and the EU to develop an effective legal framework that would safeguard the rights of citizens and the users of Internet-based services. EPIC has previously supported the Madrid Privacy Declaration and the Council of Europe Privacy Convention as good models for international privacy frameworks.
