White House Concerned About Data Discrimination, Protecting Privacy
(Washington, DC) -- The Obama administration wants new legislation aimed at protecting personal privacy to help ensure so-called "big data" is not used to discriminate against Americans. In January President Obama pledged to change some of the National Security Agency's surveillance programs. Thursday's White House report calls for Congress to amend the Electronic Communications Privacy Act to ensure a person's emails, text messages and photos remain private.
