Why You Should Call In

As this month's CES 2014 tradeshow illustrated, the emerging technologies associated with the Internet of Things are becoming increasingly prevalent in the consumer marketplace. Later this spring, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will be holding several seminars addressing emerging "Internet of Things" privacy and data security issues, specifically focusing on mobile device tracking, predictive behavioral modeling practices, and the security of consumer health information. While the technology industry waits for direction from the FTC, the FTC continues to pursue privacy and security-related enforcement actions. Companies involved in the production, marketing and operation of Internet of Things devices are therefore eager to fill this information gap so they can effectively navigate the FTC's requirements in what is becoming one of the most complex regulatory areas in the consumer marketplace.

This one-hour Advanced Practice Skills TeleBriefing features expert practitioners Alysa Hutnik (Kelley Drye & Warren LLP) and D. Reed Freeman, Jr. (Morrison & Foerster LLP), and senior FTC attorney Karen Jagielski, who works in the agency's Division of Privacy and Identity Protection and led FTC's November 2013 Internet of Things workshop. This distinguished group will discuss best practices for companies, from providing transparency regarding information collected, to understanding the security risks associated with connected devices and appropriately protecting sensitive consumer information. Attendees will also get a preview of the topics central to the upcoming 2014 FTC spring seminars and analysis on relevant issues from the perspective of the FTC and industry.
