FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection Director Sam Levine recently proclaimed a “paradigm shift” in the FTC’s approach to privacy enforcement. In an interview, Levine pointed to the FTC’s recent aggressive enforcement actions and novel remedies and said that the agency was just “getting started.” An FTC watcher suggested in August that “the past 90 days have arguably been among the most consequential three months in US privacy enforcement history, and may someday be seen as a moment of transformation in American data privacy enforcement.” On top of that, in September, Congress was poised to approve the nomination of two new Republican Commissioners. Join us as we discuss these developments and what they mean for FTC privacy regulation and your privacy practice or program. We’ll discuss some of the following themes:
- Increased reliance on unfairness claims for privacy violations.
- Remedies in privacy cases (bans, changes to default settings)
- The evolution of the FTC’s approach toward children’s privacy and content
- The FTC’s recently-announced health cases
- FTC litigation and investigation updates – Facebook, Twitter, Amazon and more
