25 Sep Google Releases Data Privacy Framework Ahead of US Data Collection Legislation
Google last Monday released its data privacy framework which called for greater transparency on the data practices of companies and improved access and control for users to their data.
The search giant’s chief privacy officer, Keith Enright, said that the framework draws on established privacy frameworks, and the company’s experiences in data-reliant services and its compliance with evolving data protection laws in different countries.
The company hopes that the set of proposals will guide Congress as it creates federal rules on the collection of data. The framework is said to be the first from a tech giant such as Google, though a number of trade associations had already published their own guidelines in recent weeks.
