The Department of Commerce Privacy Green Paper

Original broadcast date: January 20, 2011

At the close of 2010 and on the heels of the FTC's preliminary privacy report, the U. S. Department of Commerce issued a green paper laying out the need for national privacy policy and proposing options for consideration. The paper includes recommendations to recognize and revitalize the Fair Information Privacy Practices (FIPPs), encourage the development of voluntary, enforceable privacy codes of conduct, encourage global interoperability and ensure nationally consistent security breach notification rules. Hear our panel of leading thinkers analyze and discuss the proposals and their potential impact on national policy development.
