Why You Should Call In

On February 23, 2012, the White House and Department of Commerce announced a significant new framework for the regulation of privacy and collection and use of personal information in the United States. The White House Report establishes a new "Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights," and calls upon the Federal Trade Commission and Congress to action in response to the Report. The Report also calls on the Department of Commerce to convene industry stakeholder groups to develop "Codes of Conduct" that would simultaneously provide companies with a "safe harbor" regarding the sufficiency of their privacy protection practices, and set enforceable standards for companies that subscribe to the new Codes. The White House action will likely have important consequences for the ongoing dialogue and debate between the U.S. and the EU regarding the adequacy of privacy standards applicable to international companies.

In this one-hour TeleBriefing, our distinguished panel of experts will discuss the impacts of the new White House policy, and its implications for achieving regulatory compliance and future enforcement actions and litigation. Our panel includes a senior in-house privacy attorney who previously served as the FTC's point person for numerous high profile privacy and security enforcement actions, the General Counsel of an Internet company dedicated to enabling users to own, control and get value from the privacy of their personal information, and a senior privacy partner at an international law firm who previously served as the Vice Chairman of the White House Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board.
