When Your Security Brain Never Runs Out Of Problems To Find

For years, technologists wondered why the law can’t keep pace with technology. Instead of waiting for the government to pass a regulation, should we enlist private companies to regulate?

However, in a recent interview with privacy and cybersecurity attorney Camille Stewart, she said that laws are built in the same way a lot of technologies are built: in the form of a framework. That way, it leaves room and flexibility so that technology can continue to evolve.

While technologists and attorneys continue that debate, the US Federal Trade Commission is hard at work. They recently announced,  “If a company chooses to implement some or all of GDPR across their entire operations, and makes promises to U.S. consumers about their specific practices,” they must live up to those commitments, otherwise  the FTC could initiate an enforcement action if the company does not comply with” the EU data protection promises for U.S. customers.
