Don't Let Big Data Become A Big Distraction!
The Obama Administration is conducting a review of 'big data' and privacy - but we can't let big data become a big distraction! More of our data than ever before is being stored digitally, but an outdated law - the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) - says the government can access emails and documents in the cloud without a warrant. Despite huge bipartisan support in Congress and loud calls from the public, the White House has remained silent on this issue. Use the last comment box at the bottom of this page to tell President Obama now is the time to reform ECPA to require warrants for email.
