Brill: Commission To Stay On Privacy Pursuits
CONSUMER PRIVACY—U.S.March 26, 2013
Federal Trade Commissioner Julie Brill says she does not expect any “major surprises” under the leadership of Chair Edith Ramirez, Bloomberg BNA reports. Speaking at a recent event, Brill said the commission will continue to stay active on initiatives involving privacy. “I do think the commission will probably stay on roughly the same course that we’ve been on for the past three to four years.” Ramirez has indicated her priorities include enforcement of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, and Brill noted Ramirez’s expressed interest in a new study on the Internet of Things, on which the commission aims to release a report later this year.
