Federal Trade Commission, Exploring Privacy: A Roundtable Series (full-text).

Overview Edit


The Federal Trade Commission hosted a series of three day-long public roundtable discussions to explore the privacy challenges posed by the vast array of 21st century technology and business practices that collect and use consumer data. Such practices include social networking, cloud computing, online behavioral advertising, mobile marketing, and the collection and use of information by retailers, data brokers, third-party applications, and other diverse businesses. The goal of the roundtables is to determine how best to protect consumer privacy while supporting beneficial uses of the information and technological innovation.

First Roundtable Edit

Taking place in Washington, D.C. on December 7, 2009, the agenda of the first roundtable[1] focused on the risks and benefits of information-sharing practices, consumer expectations regarding such practices, behavioral advertising, information brokers, and the adequacy of existing legal and self-regulatory frameworks.

Second Roundtable Edit

The second privacy roundtable, hosted by the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, was held on January 28, 2010, in Berkeley, California. The second roundtable focused on how technology affects consumer privacy, including its role in both raising privacy concerns and enhancing privacy protections.

Third Roundtable Edit

The third roundtable took place on March 17, 2010, in Washington, D.C. The agenda[2] includes a panel addressing Internet architecture and privacy issues, panels focusing on health and other sensitive consumer information, and a concluding panel discussing lessons that have been learned from all three roundtables and possible ways forward.
