Privacy

As online commerce and social networking continue to grow, CompTIA asserts that more attention must be focused on how consumer information is collected, used, analyzed, and shared. Striking the right balance between protecting one’s privacy and using information for innovation, marketing, and security purposes, among others, is of paramount importance.

The threat of increased regulation, especially in response to global developments in privacy policy, continues to loom large. Both the Administration and Capitol Hill have devoted a great deal of time and attention to consumer privacy in the last few years and it is expected that further consideration will occur.
