IBM Response to National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s Proposed Approach to Consumer Privacy
IBM today issued the following comments in response to NTIA’s Request for Comment on Administration’s Proposed Approach to Consumer Privacy:
As part of our ongoing, all-encompassing effort to build trust in data processing and storage, IBM was, in early 2018, a founding member of the Charter of Trust for a secure digital world.
Ahead of India’s inaugural Data Summit, IBM’s Harriet Green reflects on the critical role that trust and responsibility play in driving the digital economy.
This spring IBM published our Principles for Trust and Transparency, which outline how we protect our clients’ data and insights and how we usher new innovative technologies into the world responsibly. These principles are more than just words — they are a model for how IBM treats our customers’ data, everyday, everywhere.
We understand the European Parliament, European Commission and EU Member States have reached an agreement on legislation that will enable the free flow of data across the European Union. Free flow of data is vital for European innovation, for the growth of businesses of all sizes and for achieving a Digital Single Market.
In less than two weeks, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect in the European Union—solidifying the most expansive overhaul of privacy regulations in a generation. In addition to the risk of major data breaches, cybercrime and mismanagement of personal data, privacy is now front of mind for governments across the globe.
