Data science guru joins White House team
- "Advance the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights because consumers deserve clear, understandable, reasonable standards for how their personal information is used in the big data era.
- Pass national data breach legislation that provides for a single national data breach standard,along the lines of the administration's 2011 cybersecurity legislative proposal.
- Extend privacy protections to non-U.S. persons because privacy is a worldwide value, and should be reflected in how the federal government handles personally identifiable information from non-U.S. citizens.
- Ensure Data Collected on students in school is used for educational purposes to protect students from having their data shared or used inappropriately.
- Expand technical expertise to stop discrimination so that the federal government's lead civil rights and consumer protection agencies can identify practices and outcomes facilitated by big data analytics that have a discriminatory impact on protected classes and develop plans for investigating and resolving violations of law.
- Amend the Electronic Communications Privacy Act to ensure the standard of protection for online, digital content is consistent with that afforded in the physical world – including by removing archaic distinctions between email left unread or over a certain age."
