Comments Of The Electronic Privacy Information Center (et al., ) To The National Institute of Standards and Technology on Docket NO. 0909301329-­-91332-­-01

EPIC, Coalition and Experts Champion Privacy Safeguards for Smart Grid Data

EPIC, members of the Privacy Coalition, and privacy and security experts urged a federal agency to establish safeguards for Smart Grid systems that protect consumer electricity usage information from unauthorized collection, use, disclosure, or sale. Smart Grid networks, which uniquely identify individual devices and appliances, create new privacy risks and could reveal intimate details of home life. EPIC recommended that policies be established to safeguard consumer privacy, including limitations on data collection, enforceable privacy practices, new security standards, and independent oversight. See EPIC Smart Grid and Privacy.
