Episode Description

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is considered by many organizations to be the preeminent arbiter of privacy in the US. How did the FTC develop this authority over the years? What have been some of the most privacy-impacting cases? Where do organizations need to pay more attention within their privacy efforts to avoid fines & decades-long consent decrees? What does the FTC do with all the money from the fines they are paid? Where is the FTC going with privacy regulations and enforcement? How are your posted privacy notices related to the FTC Act when it doesn’t even mention privacy? Listen in to hear Marc Groman, an internationally recognized privacy expert and the first FTC Chief Privacy Officer, discuss these and many more FTC privacy oversight and enterprise privacy management topics with Rebecca. Marc will also let listeners know where to get help with improving the security & privacy of their children’s and teens’ online use.

There are more information security and privacy threats than ever before. As more technologies emerge, more big data analytics are used, and more artificial intelligence systems are deployed, cybersecurity and privacy risks grow exponentially. Rebecca has spent her entire career working to improve information security and privacy protections, by not only raising awareness of the issues within businesses and other types of organizations, but also by raising the awareness of these risks in the public and helping them to understand how to better protect their own personal data, allowing them to take their privacy protections into their own hands. Rebecca offers you information about these existing and emerging security and privacy risks and provides fresh insights into the impacts of exploiting these risks, and gives guidance, tips, expert advice, news, with fascinating guests, to help all organizations, and the general public, understand what they need to do to mitigate these risks.
