Regulatory Working Group: FTC Privacy Rulemaking

This event is over.

On August 11, the FTC released its long-expected advance notice of public rulemaking (ANPRM) on privacy, which it refers to as relating to “commercial surveillance and data security.”

The announcement outlined several areas where the FTC is seeking input on potential rules concerning consumer privacy, including potential harms to consumers and children; costs and benefits of privacy regulation and current data practices; automated decision-making systems; algorithmic discrimination; consumer consent; and notice, transparency and disclosure. The ANPRM has yet to be published in the Federal Register, but once it is, the 60 day comment period will commence.

At this meeting of ANA's Regulatory Working Group, Stu Ingis, Chairman of Venable LLP and co-chair of the firm's eCommerce, Privacy, and Cybersecurity Group (and ANA's privacy counsel), will walk through the ANPRM and take questions from our members.
