The Need for an R&D Roadmap for Privacy

August 1, 2012
The U.S. government should create and fund a research and development (R&D) roadmap for privacy.

Effectively addressing privacy concerns in ways that do not stop innovation will require a mix of new technologies and policies to ensure data is properly safeguarded and consumers are protected. ITIF has proposed creating an R&D roadmap for privacy to help address consumer privacy concerns, better align R&D investments with strategic objectives, and enable more innovation.
