Senate Confirms Privacy Oversight Board Members

Washington — The Senate has confirmed several appointees to the U.S. Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. The voice vote gave approval for Adam Klein as member and chairman along with Jane Nitze and Ed Felten. This fills out four of the five positions on PCLOB, which has not had a quorum to operate for more than two years.

The following can be attributed to Computer & Communication Industry Association President & CEO Ed Black:

“These confirmations provide critical mass to this important oversight board at a key time as Privacy Shield is up for renewal. Businesses whose products and services depend on data transfers are glad to see this progress as Europe reviews what privacy protections the US has implemented.”
