U.S. lawmakers took the opportunity Wednesday morning to ask consumer groups how they should craft a federal law in a way that gives users tools and resources to control their data in ways that align with their expectations. Also on hand at the "Consumer Perspectives: Policy Principles for a Federal Data Privacy Framework" hearing was EU Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon to share her perspectives on enforcing the General Data Protection Regulation in its infancy and how the U.S. might follow or diverge from that strategy. Witnesses at the hearing advocated for algorithmic transparency, special provisions for children and nuanced regulations on data sets depending on their sensitivity.
