We are pleased to share that FPF Advisory Board member William McGeveran published Privacy and Data Protection Law on June 24, 2016. The textbook covers statutory and regulatory regimes such as FTC enforcement, medical privacy, and the Patriot Act.
Today, the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) and the Ohio State University’s Program on Data and Governance are holding a discussion of ethics, privacy and practical research reviews in corporate settings. This timely event, which follows the White House’s call to develop strong data ethics frameworks, convened corporate and academic leaders to discuss how to integrate ethical and privacy considerations into innovative data projects and research.
The Future of Privacy Forum filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in response to the FCC’s proposed rules regarding the privacy and data practices of Internet Services Providers (ISPs). The FCC’s March 31, 2016 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM or Notice) seeks to regulate ISP’s data practices pursuant to Section 222 of the Communications Act – a sector-specific statute that includes detailed requirements that apply to telecommunications services, but does not apply to other services offered by broadband providers nor to online services operating at the edge of the network (e.g. web sites).
Criteo and The Future of Privacy Forum are pleased to invite you to an exceptional conference gathering a very high-level selection of regulators, lawyers, advertisers, publishers and politics to discuss about individual privacy in a data driven world.
The course, titled “Cyber Policy and Privacy Law,” will be co-taught by Professor Margaret Hu and Jules Polonetsky, CEO at FPF. The course will examine how the expanding role of the internet, big data, e-commerce, social media, and wearable technology has strained the preexisting regulatory and constitutional frameworks that have guided privacy protections under the law.
Recently, the Department of Justice and the state of North Carolina have filed counter-suits regarding the state’s so called “bathroom bill.” The North Carolina “Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act” requires students to use public restrooms that correspond with their sex assigned at birth and not with the gender with which they identify.
Shearman & Sterling, LLP Partner Richard Hsu, a CIPP/US and CIPM Certified Privacy Professional, Global Head of the Intellectual Property and Technology Transactions Group and Co-Head of the Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) Industry Group, interviewed Jules Polonetsky.
