Congress has a duty to protect Americans’ privacy, and Senator Markey is recognized as a leader in Congress in this important area. He is co-chair of the Congressional Privacy Caucus (CPC) which aims to educate members of Congress and staff on matters of individual privacy, to provide a forum for the discussion of these issues and to serve as legislative advocates for personal privacy. Markey has worked to prevent misuse of Americans’ Social Security numbers, tighten the law to reduce the risks of identity theft, shut down an online scam that attempted to attract users to a fake IRS Web site, and stop tracking of Internet users’ online activities.
