DATA PROTECTION POLICY ANALYSIS
In dozens of nations, policymakers are considering and enacting data privacy and data protection laws. Data moves globally and instantly, yet it is complex and difficult to establish a national (let alone a global) framework for data governance. The Data Catalyst Institute is working to support stakeholders and policymakers as they undertake this important effort: to build a data governance framework that works locally and globally – for consumers and data-focused enterprises.
To celebrate the success of good policy and identify challenges of many proposals, DCI Report Cards score proposals and laws on a 10-factor 100-point scale. The Report Cards highlight important and core tenets of data governance policy, including issues and options that we believe regulators must consider.
Proposals can and often will evolve — before and after enactment. To reflect those changes, DCI will monitor amendments, court cases, and other changes to proposals and adjust our analysis and scores. Our objective is not to criticize or condemn, but rather to support better, broader understanding among policymakers, the media, and stakeholders in general.
Please note that Report Cards are produced as independent research to start policy conversations and do not necessarily reflect the views of our sponsors or our advisory board.
