storagedude writes “There are at least five US government efforts underway to regulate data and online privacy, according to a new US government internet policy official, who sees some kind of privacy regulation as likely. Ari Schwartz, who left the Center for Democracy and Technology two months ago to become senior internet policy advisor at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, says issues like Facebook’s never-ending privacy concerns are making some kind of a national law or regulation more and more likely. He thinks segregating identity from data isn’t enough; the data must then be aggregated after identity is stripped out. He also called for objective measures of privacy compliance.”
