As the U.S. heads towards more general regulation of personal data, how will consumer protection co-exist with the sectoral privacy laws that have been in place for a couple of decades already? The speakers will discuss the approaches we have seen and the practical and policy issues that have surfaced, based on which they will host an interactive discussion on ideas and opportunities for improvement.
