Attached please find our submission in response to the Department of Commerce’s Notice of Inquiry in the Matter of Information Privacy and Innovation in the Internet Economy.

This paper was first published in the Georgetown International Journal of Law in 2007. The disparate rules and burdens on organizations created by international cross border limitations discussed in the attached paper remain of crucial importance. More countries have passed laws restricting the free flow of information and the problems for business, governments and consumers have been exacerbated. As our economy continues to become more global and information continues to be central to the way business is done, these issues will only become more acute.
We urge the U.S. Government to lead the international discussion on these crucial issues and work to find methods to ensure that information can continue to flow freely so that innovation is not stifled, consumers can continue to have access to the products and services they desire, businesses can compete and governments can work together.
Thank you for your consideration of our comments.

To Whom it May Concern,

On behalf of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (the “IAPP”), I am delighted to share a recent research report on the future of the privacy profession. The IAPP is the world’s largest association of people working in the emerging field of privacy, and now boasts over 7,000 members in 52 countries. The IAPP serves members through a robust combination of educational, networking and certification opportunities.

As an organization, the IAPP does not take positions on matters of public policy. However, to celebrate our 10th anniversary as an organization, the IAPP recently commissioned a study on the future of the privacy profession. This report provides a compelling picture of the evolution of the management of privacy within organizations. In many ways, this report points to the critical role that privacy professionals play in actually making privacy “happen” within the public and private sectors. We felt that the report may be valuable in the Department of Commerce’s current process.

Of particular note is the continued growth of the IAPP’s certification programs – the Certified Information Privacy Profession (CIPP). This designation remains the only broad-based privacy credential available and continues to grow in certified professionals every month. We now have over 3,000 CIPPs around the world.

I hope this report is helpful to your understanding of privacy and the privacy profession. Please do not hesitate to contact the IAPP if you have any further questions.

Sincerely,

J. Trevor Hughes, CIPP
Executive Director
IAPP

Dear Colleagues:

I’m writing in response to the Notice of Inquiry re Information Privacy and Innovation in the Internet Economy. In particular, I’m writing to recommend that the Department of Commerce consider advocating for stricter laws governing the use of personal information combined with the provision of a Safe Harbor program. This is a regulatory strategy under which a federal statute explicitly recognizes differences in industry performance by treating safe harbor participants more favorably than non-participants. This approach builds upon the safe harbor program outlined in COPPA. Although COPPA’s safe harbor program was well intended, it suffers from a low rate of adoption due to a lack of regulatory flexibility and failure to sufficiently differentiate statutory compliance from program participation.

Properly implemented, a robust safe harbor program could afford the ideal environment to foster innovations in privacy protection while allowing as much flexibility as possible for industry innovation. Critical to the success of a new Safe Harbor program would be differential treatment between firms that chose to participate and those that do not. The DOC should promote what is sometimes referred to as a “co-regulatory” approach, with the right balance of carrots and sticks to incentivize businesses to participate while providing them the space and means to influence the regulatory process. Safe harbor benefits would be limited to firms demonstrating superior performance and would not be available to other covered entities that merely meet the default statutory requirements. This co-regulatory approach is more fully described in my article, “Privacy and Regulatory Innovation: Moving Beyond Voluntary Codes” which is available online at http://ssrn.com/abstract=1510275.
Thank you.

Ira Rubinstein
