Commercial surveillance and Data Security

FTC is proposing new cybersecurity law on ‘Commercial surveillance and Data Security.’ This law targets businesses that collect, analyze, and profit from information about people. 

Technologies essential to everyday life also enable near-constant surveillance of people’s private lives. The volume of data collected exposes people to identity thieves and hackers.

Mass surveillance has heightened the risks and stakes of errors, deception, manipulation, and other abuses.
