As Lina Khan’s second year as FTC Chair moves into full swing, the agency continues to change, both in its focus and the way it does business.  Noted privacy advocate Alvaro Bedoya joined the Commission, and Noah Phillips is stepping down. Congress is considering a number of privacy bills that would mandate new responsibilities and provide new resources for privacy, especially youth privacy.  And the agency kicked off its first privacy rulemaking with nearly 100 questions about “commercial surveillance.”   In this workshop, attendees will learn about these developments and more from three FTC veterans, including:

  • Agency’s privacy priorities, including in the areas of health and reproductive health information, children, edtech, geolocation, financial information, biometrics, and algorithmic bias;
  • Trends in FTC enforcement actions and remedies, including the use of the agency’s “unfairness” authority in privacy actions and “algorithmic destruction” as a remedy for illegally obtained data
  • In-depth discussion of the FTC privacy rulemaking, public reactions, and next steps
