U.S.A. version of GDPR may be in the works according to a report by AXIOS. A member of the White House National Economic Council has met with industry groups to discuss possible ways to implement protections for personal data. Among the options being discussed are: An Executive Order directing Agencies to develop a framework and guidelines. And/Or a set of policies/laws endorsed by the White House and Congress.
Regardless of the implementation, it is clear that Europe’s GDPR rollout has triggered this conversation Nationwide with some States considering various rules and Acts of their own.
While we wait to see if Congress chooses to create laws governing privacy, it seems that a majority of Americans are in favor of protections similar to GDPR.
