Event Navigation

Part of the Privacy Insight Series. Speaker: Daniel J. Solove, John Marshall Harlan Research Professor of Law, George Washington University Law School For the past nearly two decades, the FTC has risen to become the leading federal agency that regulates privacy and data security. In this webinar, Professor Daniel J. Solove, will discuss how the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is enforcing privacy and data security. Join us to learn: - What are the standards that the FTC is developing for privacy and data security? - What sources does the FTC use for the standards it develops? A common misconception is that the FTC’s jurisprudence has been rather thin, merely focuses on enforcing promises made in privacy policies. To the contrary, a deeper look the FTC’s jurisprudence demonstrates that it is quite thick and has extended far beyond policing promises. The FTC has codified certain norms and best practices and has developed some baseline privacy and security protections. The FTC has laid the foundation for an even more robust law of privacy and data security. Professor Solove will discuss some of the potential ways this body of regulation could develop in the future.
