WASHINGTON – The Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), the global voice for the technology sector's leading companies, released the following statement today from vice president and general counsel Yael Weinman on a discussion draft privacy proposal released by the Obama Administration:  

“The administration's discussion draft continues the important dialogue that is taking place both domestically and internationally surrounding privacy practices. The U.S. has a robust legal framework of privacy protections that protect consumers’ information while enabling industry to continue to innovate and offer the services that consumers rely on and expect. Any efforts to modify this framework must be carefully considered with a meaningful opportunity for all relevant stakeholders to participate in the process. ITI plans to engage with policymakers and lawmakers to provide our input.”
