Today, as part of its filings with the Federal Trade Commission, NetChoice released a white paper outlining identifying the myriad of privacy laws and actions taken against technology businesses.
This report lists the more than 100 US privacy laws governing tech and more than 75 general privacy cases and 65 data security cases brought against tech by the FTC since 2002.
“Some in Congress think the tech industry is the “wild west.” This is completely untrue. The industry is regulated by over 100 different laws and 75 enforcers,” said Carl Szabo, Vice President and General Counsel for NetChoice.
“Tech regulation is substantial with over eleven federal agencies providing oversight and more than $100 million reaped in privacy fines.”
