Thank you!
Currently, legal privacy protections for email and other cloud-stored data are weak and uncertain. Our nation’s primary digital privacy laws were established 30 years ago, and do not adequately reflect today’s cloud computing technology, where data and communications are stored remotely and across national borders.
We need to update our nation’s laws to ensure privacy protection, giving digital communications the same protections provided for physical paper letters and documents. At the same time, our laws need to enable law enforcement to access information in the course of investigations, following appropriate legal processes and the rule of law.
To address this critical issue, a bipartisan group of Congress members recently introduced the International Communications Privacy Act (ICPA). If enacted, ICPA will establish a legal framework that protects privacy, respects the sovereignty of other nations, and enables U.S. law enforcement to obtain the information they need to keep us safe.
ICPA will bring important clarity to digital privacy and enhance trust in cloud computing, in the U.S. and internationally.
Please fill out the form to the right to use social media to urge your Senate and House members to support ICPA.
