Why is ECPA reform so important?

The Electronic Communications Privacy Act was established in 1986 and as you can imagine the technology of the day in 1986 was much different than the technology of today.  Just like computers, our laws need to be checked regularly to make sure they are operating at peak efficiency.

Hedgehog Hosting, along with the i2Coalition, is working hard to ensure that our elected officials get this right.  If we do not get a good markup of this Act we fear that US based hosting companies will lose our ability to compete globally.  Moreover, we know that it will be very hard to operationalize the process needed to work effectively with agencies when there is a need to.

While there are many other points that can be brought up with regards to ECPA, the key issue for Hedgehog is the 4th Amendment protections of our customer's data.  Anything that lessens our ability to say that we will fully protect the privacy of our client's data under these already established rights is not something that we will support.  We take this responsibility very seriously, and as in the past with SOPA and PIPA, we will make our voices heard to ensure that ECPA reform will be prudent for today's Internet standards.

Hedgehog Hosting will stand with other like-minded companies on March 5th at the i2Coaltion's Internet Education Day on Capitol Hill to discuss how small to medium businesses can strike the right balance between safety and privacy while fostering the growth of the Internet ecosystem as a whole.  If you are interested in learning more visit the i2coalition website and follow us on Twitter @HedgehogHosting.
