Peter Swire Comments to USA Today on President Obama’s Cyberprotection Proposals

In a recent speech to Federal Trade Commission employees, President Obama proposed legislation designed to protect the online privacy of consumers and students.

Peter Swire, Georgia Institute of Technology professor and senior counsel in Alston & Bird’s Privacy & Data Security Practice, said that Obama’s proposals cement the pro-privacy position of the administration.

“[This is] the first administration to support online privacy legislation,” Swire said. “The announcement suggests its continued opposition to cybersecurity legislation that would compromise privacy.”
