    Washington Needs to Take a Stand on What Digital Privacy Is

    "Recent events have brought debates around digital privacy into the spotlight, and we have finally hit the breaking point. To tackle this important issue, we need the national government to take a stance on what our digital privacy is. Is it an immutable human right? If so, there needs to be explicit legislation that goes beyond what is currently in place. It needs to protect each and every citizen and hold those who might put our privacy in jeopardy accountable for their actions. This will be the most important cybersecurity decision in the next year and it will shape the security and privacy landscape for years to come."

Privacy rights took a hit when Congress and President Trump decided to roll back rules adopted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) at the end of the Obama administration regarding online data collection. As Carl Weinschenk wrote:

Among other things, they mandate that consumers give their permission ("opt in") for their location, browsing history and perhaps other data to be shared …
