EPIC to File Brief in D.C. Circuit on Right to Information Privacy

EPIC has informed the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals that it will file an amicus brief in the OPM Data Security Breach case. The case concerns a pair of data breaches in 2015 that affected 22 million federal employees, their friends, and family members. EPIC has long warned that federal agencies collect far too much personal data that they fail to protect. In the 2012 case NASA v. Nelson, concerning repeated data breaches at the space agency, EPIC urged the Supreme Court to recognize a right to "informational privacy" that would limit data collection by federal agencies.
