FTC Chair to Speak at Release of Report Claiming Digital Data Collection Not Anonymous
ADOTAS – Mark your calendars: On Tuesday, Oct. 11, Federal Trade Commission Chairman Jon Leibowitz will be delivering the keynote speech at “Yes, They Really Know It’s You: The Digital Collection of Personal Information From Consumers and Citizens,” an event promoting the release of a new study that promises to prove that digital data collection is not anonymous.
The meetup — sponsored by the ACLU, Center for Digital Democracy, Consumer Action, Consumer Federation of America, Consumers Union, Consumer Watchdog, Electronic Privacy Information Center, Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, US PIRG and World Privacy Forum – is being held in the First Amendment Room at the National Press Club in Washington, DC from 8:45 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.; the live webcast can be viewed here.
In addition to general talk about digital privacy, Leibowitz is expected to discuss the FTC’s proposed framework for protecting consumer privacy while allowing online businesses to further innovate. Also speaking is Jonathan Mayer from the Stanford Security Laboratory (who raised the ire of many online ad companies earlier this summer); Christian Fjeld, senior counsel for the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation; and other privacy and civil liberties advocates.
