Undergrad Weighs in on Privacy Laws

Computer science junior Rona Yu has embarked on a yearlong project to answer the question: “What should the nation be doing, right now, to draft a privacy regulation?" She has written a paper that covers the points that new privacy legislation should be prioritizing, as well as the potential unintended consequences of the legislation that has been proposed. She is also preparing a document describing her findings that I will submit to the Federal Trade Commission. [Caltech story]
