NAAG Theme for 2012: Privacy in the Digital Age
PRIVACYJune 27, 2012
Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler has been elected president of the National Association of Attorneys General and has selected "Privacy in the Digital Age," as the year's theme. In this exclusive for The Privacy Advisor, Gansler discusses his ambitions to find the line between privacy invasions and companies' legitimate business interests, encouraging companies to be transparent and attorney generals' increasing role as the "Internet police." Gansler says no one seems to have the answer yet on where the line should be drawn between consumer privacy rights and companies' rights to pursue their business interests, but he hopes to help define that line throughout the next year.
