EPIC urged the Committee to set a strong baseline for national data breach notifications that protect consumers and does not preempt state law. "More needs to be done. To protect consumers there must be strong measures, including data-breach transparency and the mandatory use of Privacy Enhancing Techniques," EPIC wrote. EPIC also reiterated support for the White House's 2012 Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights, which reflects widely established standards in current US privacy law. "Enactment of the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights would establish new baseline consumer data safeguards, promoting consumer trust and confidence in the digital economy," EPIC said. EPIC further urged the Committee to promote "algorithmic transparency." EPIC wrote, "We must end the secret profiling of American consumers that excludes many from economic opportunity. It is not sufficient for companies to reveal the circumstances when breaches have occurred, companies should also be required to disclose the basis of automated decision-making." In April 2014 comments to the US Office of Science and Technology Policy, EPIC similarly warned that "[t]he ongoing collection of personal information in the United States without sufficient privacy safeguards has led to staggering increases in identity theft, security breaches, and financial fraud." EPIC has testified previously before Congress on data breach notification, urging Congress to set a national baseline standard. In 2011, EPIC told Congress, "Because states enjoy a unique perspective that allows them to craft innovative programs to protect consumers, they should be permitted to continue to operate as 'laboratories of democracy' in the privacy and data security arena. State legislatures are closer to their constituents and the entities they regulate; they are the first to see trends and problems, and are well-suited to address new challenges and opportunities that arise from evolving technologies and business practices."

The President's announcements included a proposal for a Student Digital Privacy Act and a Personal Data Notification & Protection Act. The President also emphasized his intention to move forward with the 2012 Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights, a framework EPIC endorsed. However, the White House cybersecurity legislative proposals would would enable the transfer of personal information from private companies to government agencies outside the traditional limitation for electronic surveillance. The White House would also encourage "private-sector led Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations," similar to the recent Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA. Privacy and civil liberties advocates decried CISPA, arguing that the Act's vague language would have allowed government access to user data without judicial oversight. President Obama's proposed data breach legislation would require businesses to notify consumers within 30 days of a breach, and would preempt all state laws. In 2011, EPIC testified before the House Commerce Committee on data breaches. EPIC supported federally mandated breach notification but argued that such a law should be baseline and not preempt stronger state laws.

In a speech at the Federal Trade Commission, the President urged Congress to enact his proposed Student Digital Privacy Act along with the White House's 2012 Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights and a data- breach notification bill. In addition to the legislation, the President also announced a voluntary Student Privacy Pledge, now signed by 99 companies including Apple, Google, and Microsoft. These companies promise not to sell student data to third parties for commercial purposes and to refrain from using student data to perform algorithmic profiling. According to the White House, The Student Digital Privacy Act will prohibit companies from selling data for non-educational purposes and from using data for targeted advertising. The bill's text has yet to be released. In 2014 EPIC called for a Student Privacy Bill of Rights. Based largely on the well-established Fair Information Practices (FIPs), the Student Privacy Bill of Rights provides an enforceable student privacy and data security framework. In addition to promoting the Student Privacy Bill of Rights, EPIC has urged the US Department of Education to strengthen student privacy. In 2011 EPIC opposed the Department of Education's proposed regulations to remove limitations on educational institutions and agencies disclosing student data without consent. When the agency went ahead with the proposed change, EPIC filed suit in federal court.

Department of Education https://epic.org/apa/ferpa/ ======================================================================== [4] EPIC Urges New Mexico Supreme Court to Limit Aerial Surveillance ========================================================================= EPIC argued January 13 before New Mexico's highest court in a case concerning police aerial surveillance. In State v. Davis, the New Mexico Supreme Court is considering whether the state constitution prohibits warrantless aerial surveillance of a person's "home and curtilage." EPIC Senior Counsel Alan Butler warned the court of the risk of widespread drone surveillance and argued that such surveillance within the airspace surrounding an individual's home is a search under the federal Fourth Amendment. EPIC had filed a "friend of the court" brief in the case in December 2014, citing the need "to draw clear Constitutional boundaries limiting police use of aerial surveillance" as drone use by law enforcement increases. State v. Davis arose out of a multi-agency law enforcement operation to identify "marijuana plantations" through a combination of aerial (helicopter) surveillance and ground agents. After an Army National Guard helicopter spotted "vegetation" in Davis' backyard and greenhouse, a number of heavily armed law enforcement agents and vehicles arrived on Davis' property, supported by the still-hovering helicopter. Despite numerous indications of coercion, Davis ultimately allowed law enforcement to search his property, where they found marijuana plants and drug paraphernalia. Davis was indicted in New Mexico state court for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Davis filed a motion to suppress the evidence in which he argued that the helicopter surveillance violated the state and federal constitutions. Most recently, the New Mexico Court of Appeals held that the government's use of aerial surveillance was not a search under the federal Fourth Amendment, but improper under the state's constitution. The government appealed the appellate court's ruling. EPIC frequently files "friend of the court" briefs in state and federal courts on important Fourth Amendment issues related to new technologies. Most recently, EPIC filed a brief in Riley v. California, a US Supreme Court case concerning cell phone searches post-arrest. The Court ruled in favor of the party supported by EPIC and cited EPIC's brief in the majority opinion. EPIC will soon file another brief to the in City of Los Angeles v. Patel, a case concerning warrantless searches of hotel guest registries. EPIC: State v. Davis https://www.epic.org/amicus/drones/new-mexico/davis/ EPIC: "Friend of the Court" Brief in State v.

EPIC also awarded the 2015 US Privacy Champion Award to Philip Zimmerman, inventor of the PGP encryption program. The awards were presented January 22 at the annual Computers, Privacy & Data Protection conference in Brussels. Peter Hustinx served as European Data Protection Supervisor between 2004 and 2014. He has been closely involved in the development of EU data protection legislation both nationally and internationally. Prior to entering office at EDPS, Hustinx was President of the Dutch Data Protection Authority for more than 12 years. Hustinx used his acceptance speech to praise the "great team" at EDPS and acknowledge EPIC's key role in civil society's movement toward improved privacy and personal data protection. Phil Zimmermann is the creator of PGP, the most widely used email encryption software in the world, and of the Zfone/ZRTP secure VoIP standard. Phil is also co-founder of Silent Circle, a private encrypted telecommunications firm based in Geneva and Washington, DC that provides encrypted text, mobile phone and video teleconference services. In his acceptance speech, Zimmermann recalled when PGP was first released in 1991. "We take it for granted today, but at that time there was no way for two normal human beings to communicate securely. We solved that problem. But today we must face down the threat of pervasive surveillance, and I'm glad we have EPIC on our side," he said. The first EPIC Champion of Freedom Award was given in 2004 to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), on the occasion of EPIC's tenth anniversary. The Champion and International Champion of Freedom Awards have gone to distinguished policy makers, jurists, writers and litigators who have helped safeguard privacy and democratic values. The EPIC International Privacy Champion Award was given first in 2009 to Italian jurist Professor Stefano Rodotà. Since then the Award has gone to Australian jurist Michael Kirby (2010), MEP Sophie in’t Veld (2011), Canadian Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart (2012), EU privacy campaigner Max Schrems (2013), and MEP Jan Philipp Albrecht (2014). EPIC also presents an award to a leading Privacy Advocate in the United States. The EPIC US Privacy Champion Award was given first to Beth Givens, founder and director of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse in San Diego, in 2010. Subsequent awards have gone to Jeff Chester, founder and director of the Center for Digital Democracy (2011), Christopher Soghoian, a computer researcher and privacy advocate (2012), Susan Grant, Consumer Federation of America (2013), and Evan Hendricks, publisher of Privacy Times (2014). The 2015 EPIC Champion of Freedom Awards dinner will be held June 1 in Washington, DC. Details will be posted at epic.org/june1.

Pirker, that challenged the agency's ability to regulate the commercial use of drones. The settlement requires the drone operator to pay a $1,100 fine for violating the FAA regulation. Despite the ban, the agency continues to grant exceptions for commercial drone use. A small drone recently crashed on the White House grounds, raising additional concerns the anticipated deployment of drones in the US. EPIC has petitioned the FAA to establish clear privacy rules for the operation of commercial drones. NTSB: Huerta v.

The Inspector General launched an investigation after the Senate accused the CIA of improperly accessing the computers of Senate staff who were investigating CIA torture practices. The Inspector General found that CIA personnel improperly accessed Senate computers multiple times. The Inspector General also found that the CIA's accusations that Senate staff had improperly removed CIA files were baseless. EPIC will pursue release of the full, unredacted report.

The New Press (May 2015). Price: $25.95. http://epic.org/buy-privacy-modern-age The threats to privacy are well known: The National Security Agency tracks our phone calls; Google records where we go online and how we set our thermostats; Facebook changes our privacy settings when it wishes; Target gets hacked and loses control of our credit card information; our medical records are available for sale to strangers; our children are fingerprinted and their every test score saved for posterity; and small robots patrol our schoolyards while drones may soon fill our skies. The contributors to this anthology don't simply describe these problems or warn about the loss of privacy—they propose solutions. They look closely at business practices, public policy, and technology design and ask, "Should this continue? Is there a better approach?" They take seriously the dictum of Thomas Edison: "What one creates with his hand, he should control with his head." It's a new approach to the privacy debate, one that assumes privacy is worth protecting, that there are solutions to be found, and that the future is not yet known. This volume will be an essential reference for policy makers and researchers, journalists and scholars, and others looking for answers to one of the biggest challenges of our modern day. The premise is clear: There's a problem — let's find a solution. Contributors include: Steven Aftergood, Ross Anderson, Christine L. Borgman (coauthored with Kent Wada and James F.
