Join TPI for: Facebook and Cambridge Analytica: The Regulatory and Policy Implications

by

The Facebook-Cambridge Analytica (CA) controversy has it all – big tech, privacy, the Trump campaign, and the never-ending attempt to relitigate the 2016 election.  It’s almost enough to push Stormy Daniels off the front page.

What is less known is what the outcome will be. With Facebook pledging reforms, users demanding more transparency and lawmakers considering legislative fixes, the fallout from the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica could reshape how consumers’ data is used and shared – with lasting affects over seemingly every aspect of our online lives.

Join the Technology Policy Institute as they bring together a panel of experts to provide insight and answers to what the Facebook data issue means to the tech companies, policy makers and consumers alike.

Lunch will be provided.
