Privacy: What is The Way Forward?
To discuss these issues, a panel will address questions related to the federal government’s role, including:
- Do the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and perhaps other state legislation mean that federal legislation is needed?
- If so, what should it contain? Should it preempt the states?
- Has the current FTC ex post enforcement approach based on actual harms been successful? Should the U.S. move to an ex ante regulatory approach similar to the GDPR and CCPA?
- What should the respective roles of the Administration, Congress, and the FTC be?
Panel participants include:
- Julie Brill, Corporate Vice President and Deputy General Counsel for Global Privacy and Regulatory Affairs, Microsoft; former Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission
- Roslyn Layton, Visiting Scholar, American Enterprise Institute
- Maureen Ohlhausen, former Commissioner and Acting Chairwoman, Federal Trade Commission
- Alan Raul, Founder and Leader, Sidley Austin Privacy and Data Security, and Information Law practice
- Gail Slater, Special Assistant to the President for Tech, Telecom, and Cyber Policy, White House National Economic Council
