White House Report Warns Of 'Big Data' Abuses

Devin Coldewey for NBC News:

To that end, the report offers six major policy recommendations:

  • A Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights that codifies what people can expect when opting in or out of data collection programs.
  • Stringent requirements on preventing and reporting data breaches.
  • Privacy protection for more than just U.S. citizens as a global gesture of good faith.
  • Ensure data collected in schools is used only for educational purposes.
  • Prevent big data from being used as a method of discrimination (so-called “digital redlining”).
  • Update the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) to be consonant with an age of cloud computing, mobile data, and email.

Who would oppose such clear recommendations and what would be their arguments?
