Description

Commissioner Brill is visiting the West Coast to engage developers, startups, and consumers for input on the issues that the Federal Trade Commission is addressing in the near and long term. Come and ask questions and provide feedback on the issues that Commissioner Brill is working on, including: consumer privacy (kids, mobile, financial), advertising rules, financial fraud & ID theft, facial recognition, cybersecurity and more. The San Francisco event will complement the State of the Net West technology town hall meeting with Commissioner Brill at Santa Clara Law School on Thursday morning [more details]. The lunchtime event in Santa Clara on September 20th is a student oriented event, but is also open to the public.

The FTC is the leading U.S. agency dealing with online privacy, security and consumer protection. Recently the FTC entered into privacy consent orders with Google, Facebook and Twitter. Just last month the FTC assessed a record fine against Google for alleged privacy violations. Facebook recently settled charges with the Commission over its privacy policy. Just this year the FTC called for legislation to regulate data brokers in its "Report on Protecting Consumer Privacy." The FTC is actively working on privacy in the mobile space and so-called "Do Not Track" browser implementations. In addition, it recently proposed new privacy rules for children.
