  • EPIC Urges NTIA to Back Data Minimization, Address Wide Range of Harms to Minors Online

    November 17, 2023

    As children and teens continue spend so much of their lives online in recreational, social and educational settings, it has become clear that existing laws and regulations do not sufficiently protect minors from online harms. In the face of emerging risks from AI and other technologies, EPIC recommended that the NTIA center safeguards like data minimization or a ban on targeted advertising to minors in any of its future recommendations.

  • EPIC Encourages NTIA to Maintain Focus on Commercial Data Harms

    March 7, 2023

    EPIC submitted comments yesterday in response to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)’s Request for Comment on Privacy, Equity and Civil Rights, encouraging NTIA to maintain its focus on harmful commercial data practices that disproportionately impact marginalized and historically excluded communities. EPIC urged NTIA to back robust oversight mechanisms and data minimization standards rather than an outdated self-regulatory model that fails to prevent consumer harms. Specifically, EPIC recommended algorithmic transparency requirements and mandatory risk and impact assessments because the “onus to avoid harms cannot rest on consumers.”
