Big data and privacy report

The White House released a long-awaited report on how the technology industry’s collection of big data affects the online privacy of millions of Americans. The report recommends that Congress pass national data breach legislation, extend privacy protections to non-US citizens, and update the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, which controls how the government can access email.
