Data Privacy Top of Mind for 2020 Candidates

February 11, 2019 / Kacy Zurkus

More candidates announced that they are throwing their hats into the 2020 presidential race, with one of the latest declarations coming from Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who promises to focus on data privacy regulations. After posing the rhetorical question of what she would do as President, Klobuchar said she would protect consumer privacy. “We need to put some digital rules of the road into law when it comes to privacy,” Klobuchar said in her announcement on 10 February, according to TwinCities.com. “For too long the big tech companies have been telling you: ‘Don’t worry! We’ve got your back!’ while your identities in fact are being stolen and your data is mined. Our laws need to be as sophisticated as the people who are breaking them. We must revamp our nation’s cybersecurity and guarantee net neutrality.”
