    The correct answer is option (B) "Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) ".


    The Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) was enacted by the United States Congress in 1986 as an effort to assure the privacy of consumers personal information. ECPA protects the interception of a person's wire and electronic communications, providing the same protection covered by mail and telephone communications. Those who violate ECPA could face up to five years in prison and fines up to $250,000 dollars.
