At the "Celebration of Privacy," Representative Ed Markey (D-MA) received 1 of 4 of the first Louis D. Brandeis Privacy Awards. The Louis D. Brandeis Privacy Awards recognize the recipients for their significant intellectual, legal, and technical contributions to the field of health information privacy. Standing on the shoulders of the Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis, these heroes work to ensure that the "highest right of civilized man" remains the foundation for all electronic systems and for law and policy governing the use and control of sensitive information.

Introduced by Former Speaker of the US House of Representatives, the Honorable Richard A. Gephardt

Representative Ed Markey
Congressman
Massachusetts

Congressman Markey is a national leader on technology policy and consumer protection. He served for 20 years as Chair or Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet where he was the principal author of many of the laws now governing our nation's telephone, broadcasting, cable television, wireless, and broadband communications systems. Additionally, he is one of the earliest and strongest leaders for health privacy rights. As Congress began to grapple with the lack of health privacy, he authored model federal legislation known as the TRUST Act, setting a high bar to address gaps in HIPAA. As HITECH was being drafted, he was instrumental in assuring the inclusion of key new health data security and privacy protections for all consumers and patients. He personally championed tough new data security protections requiring technologies like encryption to render data unreadable.
