Latest Privacy Insight Series Webinar Addresses FTC Stance on Privacy, Security

July 24, 2015

FTC’s Policies on Privacy and Security

FTC’s Policies on Privacy and Security

The FTC is the leading privacy and security regulator in the U.S. says Daniel J. Solove, a professor at George Washington University Law School who runs a privacy and security training company called TeachPrivacy and organizes the The Privacy + Security Forum conference. Although there is hardly any case law, Solove noted in presenting this webinar, the FTC looms large in practice.

In 1998, only about 2% of websites had some form of privacy policy, now nearly every website has one.

“We’ve seen a huge rise in privacy policies,” Solove says.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, a debate was raging about how personal information would be protected online. It was argued that self-regulation would work. As a result, companies began to self-regulate their privacy practices by creating their own policies.

December 14th Webinar: Mobile App Privacy Legal Enforcement Begins – Are Your Apps Compliant?

December 13, 2012

This Friday, December 14th, TRUSTe is hosting a webinar on the Enforcement of Mobile App Privacy Law. TRUSTe experts Saira Nayak, Director of Policy, and Joanne Furtsch, Director of Product Policy, will share what it means to be compliant with the CalOPPA Act and whether your company is in danger. If your company has a mobile app, or a mobile website, it may be at risk of significant monetary penalties ($2,500 per app download) and negative media coverage. The law may still apply even if your company is not based in California, or if you only offer free apps.

On October 30th the California Attorney General’s office gave a 30 day notice before they were going to start actively enforcing the Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA). On December 6th, they announced their first lawsuit which charges Delta Airlines for neglecting to comply.
