Event – Online Privacy after the DOC and FTC Reports

Panelists to Discuss Privacy Proposals at March 4th Event

February 24, 2011 – The long-awaited Federal Trade Commission and Department of Commerce reports outlined recommendations for online privacy policy ranging from strengthening multi-stakeholder models to a “Do Not Track” mechanism for internet browsers. Congress is now poised to add its voice to the debate, with legislation already introduced and more to come. With the proposals representing a wide swath of options, how can policymakers choose the best course of action? How will each proposal affect online businesses and consumers? Alternately, is a federal privacy policy needed or advisable? Panelists at the March 4th event, “Online Privacy after the DOC and FTC Reports” will discuss the findings of the recent DOC and FTC reports and will give their suggestions on how policymakers in both the agencies and Congress can move forward on online privacy issues. Confirmed participants include:

  • William Kovacic, Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission
  • Daniel Sepulveda, Senior Advisor, Office of Senator John Kerry
  • Catherine Tucker, Douglas Drane Career Development Professor in IT and Management, Sloan School of Management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
