Comments to the NTIA on Big Data and Privacy

by Daniel Castro
National Telecommunications and Information Administration

Earlier this summer, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) asked the public for comments on big data and consumer privacy, including whether the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights is the best way to reduce harmful uses of big data and what legal recourse exists to prevent data-driven discrimination. The Center for Data Innovation submitted comments recommending that policymakers restrict specific harmful uses of data, promote data reuse and sharing, and look to existing anti-discrimination law as a model for reducing data misuse. The Center urged policymakers to consider whether abstract fears about potential future harms are worth stalling the concrete benefits of data, including saving lives.
