Following the release of proposed cyber security legislation last week, the White House today unveiled "International Strategy for Cyberspace: Prosperity, Security, and Openness in a Networked World." The Strategy is ambitious and far-reaching, covering economic policy, foreign affairs, homeland security, and defense. The Strategy also emphasizes the need to safeguard fundamental freedom and privacy rights. To address growing concerns about online privacy, EPIC has recommended that the United States begin the process of ratifying the International Privacy Convention, which has been adopted by more than 40 countries. For more information see, EPIC - Privacy Convention.
