DOC Reports on First Stakeholder Meeting
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.August 3, 2012
The Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) Director of Privacy Initiatives John Verdi reports on progress toward implementing the Obama administration’s Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights. The first stakeholder meeting drew hundreds of participants and raised “constructive suggestions regarding what elements might be included in the code,” Verdi writes, adding that the NTIA’s role will not be to weigh in on issues but to guide a transparent and consensus-based process. The NTIA will hold the next two stakeholder meetings August 22 and August 29 and has posted discussion lists from the last meeting. In the meantime, stakeholders have created a public mailing list to discuss the process.
