WASHINGTON – CompTIA, the world’s leading technology association, released the following statement from CompTIA’s executive vice president for public advocacy Elizabeth Hyman on the release of the Senate’s ECPA Modernization Act of 2017 introduced by Senators Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah).
“CompTIA thanks Senators Lee and Leahy both for introducing the ECPA Modernization Act of 2017 and for their tireless efforts to reform ECPA over the last several years. Reforming ECPA to require a warrant for content is crucial to protecting Americans’ privacy, and we hope that the Senate will move quickly to pass the ECPA Modernization Act of 2017, particularly given the overwhelming support ECPA reform has received in the House.”
