EPIC Launches "Data Protection 2016" to Make Privacy a Campaign Issue

Noting widespread concern about the state of privacy in America, EPIC has launched "Data Protection 2016," a non-partisan campaign to make data protection an issue in the 2016 election. EPIC President Marc Rotenberg said, "Data breaches, identity theft, and government surveillance are critical issues facing American voters, yet the candidates have said hardly a word." Security expert Bruce Schneier said, "Privacy is a critical issue that touches many aspects of Americans' lives. The Presidential candidates need to have a plan to protect our personal information." DataProtection2016 shows widespread support for stronger privacy protections in the United States. Campaign materials, including buttons and stickers, are available. Donations will support the work of EPIC.
