GAO Report Recommends Congress Create Internet Data Privacy Law

An independent report authored by a U.S. government auditing agency has recommended that Congress develop Internet data privacy legislation to enhance consumer protections, similar to the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The 56-page report was put together by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), a bi-partisan government agency that provides auditing, evaluation, and investigative services for Congress.
