EPIC Urges Support for New European Privacy Framework

In testimony before the European Parliament, in Brussels, EPIC President Marc Rotenberg expressed support for the new Data Protection regulation of the European Union. "Efforts to update European Privacy law will provide benefits to Internet users all around the globe," Rotenberg said. US consumer organizations have also expressed support for the EU initiative. The Madrid Privacy Declaration, endorsed by more than 100 civil society organizations, calls for the "establishment of a new international framework for privacy protection, with the full participation of civil society, that is based on the rule of law, respect for fundamental human rights, and support for democratic institutions."
