Report: Trump administration drafting framework for privacy protections

The Trump administration is in the process of drafting a proposal to protect the privacy of internet users' data, according to The Washington Post, in an effort to respond to criticism about the lack of a federal framework to protect user information.

Recently, data privacy violations at Facebook Inc. and throughout parts of the U.S. tech industry have been the subject of scorn from U.S. federal lawmakers and ignited global criticism of the privacy practices of some top U.S. technology companies.

After the European Union passed a strict set of privacy laws in April, known as the General Data Protection Regulation, consumer attention has been turning to the U.S. to see how it will respond. The EU rules took effect May 25.

The Post reported July 27 that the U.S. Department of Commerce has been meeting with tech giants like with Facebook and Alphabet Inc.'s Google LLC, but also with internet service providers like AT&T and Comcast Corp., in addition to consumer advocacy groups, with the hopes of rolling out a draft framework in the fall.
