TechNet Welcomes the Introduction of a National Privacy Law

Washington, D.C. – TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, today applauded the introduction of the Setting an American Framework to Ensure Data Access, Transparency, and Accountability (SAFE DATA) Act in the U.S. Senate and called on Congress to pass federal privacy legislation. The following statement can be attributed to Linda Moore, President and CEO of TechNet:

“The need for a national privacy law has never been greater. Protecting user data and privacy is a priority for all businesses across every sector of the U.S. economy. Consumers deserve the peace of mind knowing their data is protected no matter where they live, work, or shop and businesses should have the certainty they need to innovate and grow.

“However, the lack of a national privacy law is hurting consumers and stunting the growth of small- and medium-sized businesses who are forced to navigate a patchwork of state laws and often conflicting regulations.

“For years, lawmakers have discussed the need for a uniform national privacy law. We applaud Senators Wicker and Blackburn for meeting the moment by proposing a national privacy standard that provides uniform protections, transparency, and consistency for all Americans. We urge Congress to work together on a bill that provides strong and balanced safeguards to protect consumer's data while allowing businesses the flexibility to create innovative new products, generate high-paying jobs, and grow our economy through a regulatory balance that strengthens America’s global competitiveness.”
