Our readers may have noticed that there is a lot in the privacy news this week. On Monday, I appeared on FoxNews.com Live to discuss smartphones and location privacy. Yesterday, Dave appeared on Fox 31 Denver KDVR to discuss The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). And new privacy and security law stories are breaking on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis. We will continue to watch these and other rapidly evolving issues and will post new developments here.
Today, the Federal Trade Commission announced the launch of a business center portal to help businesses understand and comply with privacy and information security requirements that the FTC enforces. The new portal provides centralized access to the FTC's privacy and information security regulations, enforcement actions and guides. The main portal also offers information about compliance with advertising, credit, telemarketing and myriad other requirements. A series of short videos explain what businesses need to know to comply, and the business center blog offers latest compliance tips and information.
Last week, we joined privacy regulators, practitioners and industry representatives from around the world in Jerusalem for the 32nd International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners. On numerous panels, conference participants engaged in lively discussions about privacy compliance and enforcement as well as the future of privacy in light of evolving consumer expectations and advances in technology that tracks and identifies individuals.
