Quick Take: The State Of Privacy In The Union

President Obama Introduces Privacy Initiatives With High Merit But Low Potential

January 21, 2015


Why Read This Brief

United States President Barack Obama introduced several proposed privacy initiatives in his 2015 State of the Union address and in preview comments he made to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) the prior week. These proposals include a consumer bill of rights, federal breach notification requirements, and safeguards for student data. Many of these proposals have substantial merit, but the next year is unlikely to see much progress toward achieving any of them. This report outlines the president's key proposals and what effect they might have on security and privacy professionals.
