Report: Data Brokers and the Federal Government

The report Data Brokers and the Federal Government: A New Front in the Battle for Privacy Opens,  Part III in a series was published October 30, 2013.

Report authors: Bob Gellman and Pam Dixon

This report focuses on government use of commercial data brokers, the implications for that usage, and what needs to be done to address privacy problems. The report argues that government must bring itself fully to heel in the area of privacy. If it is going to outsource its data needs to commercial data brokers, it needs to attach the privacy standards it would have been held to if it had collected the data itself. Outsourcing is not an excuse for evading privacy obligations.
