Washington — Shortly after the introduction of the ECPA Modernization Act in the Senate, Senators Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Chris Coons, D-Del., introduced the International Communications Privacy Act. ICPA would include similar warrant protections for electronic communications and help develop solutions for law enforcement access to communications that do not pertain to U.S. persons or that may be stored abroad. CCIA joined other associations in sending Congress a letter in support of ICPA’s principles.

The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“The International Communications Privacy Act would strengthen users’ privacy protections online with respect to emails, while helping to address the complicated thicket of legal conflicts providers and government agencies face with respect to cross-border law enforcement access to data.”
