Toward Objective Global Privacy Standards

Abstract

Technical standards offer a new ability to support the important public policy goal of better protecting privacy. To do so most effectively, we must begin to move from the privacy standards based on subjective and procedural efforts to a series of objective performance driven privacy standards. Better scientific metrics tied to each Fair Information Practice Principle are a necessary precursor to the reproducible measurements for any set of objective criteria that could be the basis for such standards.
