During the course of this reporting period, Mozilla maintained its efforts to protect the privacy and security of our users through public policy engagements. In the European Union, we continued our work on the eIDAS legislation, which threatens web security by placing a ceiling on the security standards. This included holding an event with a Member of European Parliament, engaging with civil society allies, and continuing our public campaign to drive awareness of the risks posed by the issue. We also engaged in the role governments can play in software supply chain security.
In the United Kingdom, we continued our work on privacy preserving advertising and mitigating online tracking via conversations with the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). We also spoke on panels on adtech regulations and privacy in Amsterdam and on the nexus between privacy and competition in St. Gallen.
In the United States, we submitted comments in the FTC’s “Commercial Surveillance and Data Security” advance notice of proposed rulemaking (where we also spoke at the Public Forum), commented on the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s consultation on privacy-preserving data sharing, and responded to a US Government Request for Information on Federal Priorities for Information Integrity Research & Development. We also endorsed the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) and held an event with experts to discuss the legislation, and supported the Platform Accountability and Transparency Act (PATA).
In India, we spoke on algorithmic accountability and personal data protection, organised technical workshops on privacy preserving advertising, and engaged on the latest iteration of India’s data protection law. In Kenya, we launched a course on Lean Data Practices focused on Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to increase their awareness and capabilities in managing data responsibly.
