FTC Leaders Reflect, Discuss Key Issues
CONSUMER PRIVACY—U.S.December 6, 2012
Departing FTC Commissioner J. Thomas Rosch and Bureau of Consumer Protection Director David Vladeck reflected this week on their rich and eventful tenures at the agency while expressing differing views underlying the FTC’s role in consumer privacy protection. Speaking at the IAPP Practical Privacy Series in Washington, DC, Vladeck said “the FTC takes commitments about privacy seriously and has the capacity to police an increasingly complex ecosystem.” Rosch discussed what he described as the “new privacy paradigm” that began in 2010. This exclusive for The Privacy Advisor examines their comments and includes insights from Arnall Golden Gregory Partner Bob Belair.
