IBM Welcomes House Passage of the Judicial Redress Act

Share this post:

Washington, D.C. – IBM today issued the following statement on passage of H.R. 1428, the Judicial Redress Act, by the U.S. House of Representatives:

“Privacy, and the right to exercise control over one’s personal information, should not be limited by lines on a map.

IBM applauds the House of Representatives for bolstering that basic principle with passage of the Judicial Redress Act. As our Chief Privacy Officer recently pointed out, giving non-U.S. citizens the right to rectify any misuse or wrongful disclosure of their personal information is key to strengthening the bonds of trust and cooperation between America and our closest allies, particularly those in Europe.

We commend Representatives Sensenbrenner and Conyers for their leadership on this vital data policy issue, and now urge the Senate to take up and pass the companion bill introduced by Senators Hatch and Murphy.”

– Timothy J. Sheehy, Vice President, Technology Policy, IBM Government and Regulatory Affairs
