In comments for the National Institute of Standard and Technology’s (NIST) ongoing Study To Advance a More Productive Tech Economy, EPIC urged the agency to recommend that Congress adopt baseline privacy laws governing artificial intelligence, internet of things devices, and drone delivery. EPIC argued that strong privacy laws will help U.S. companies distinguish themselves as more privacy protective options in crowded international markets. EPIC’s regularly provides NIST with comments on a range of topics including risk management for artificial intelligence and federal identity verification standards. EPIC’s Deputy Director Caitriona Fitzgerald recently testified before Congress on the importance of a federal comprehensive data privacy law.
