Consumer Data Privacy in a Networked World: A Framework for Protecting Privacy and Promoting Innovation in the Global Digital Economy

Categories : Consumer protection, Regulation of Digital Financial Services



The existing framework in the United States effectively addresses some privacy issues in our increasingly networked society, but additional protections are necessary to preserve consumer trust. The framework set forth in this document will provide these protections while promoting innovation.

The Administration’s framework consists of four key elements: A Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights, a multistakeholder process to specify how the principles in the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights apply in particular business contexts, effective enforcement, and a commitment to increase interoperability with the privacy frameworks of our international partners.
