)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled Understanding The Federal Trade Commission's Proposed Framework for Consumer Privacy Protection. This two-hour event is scheduled on June 6, 2011 at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET.
Over the last few years, many companies have used consumer information as a business tools to create innovative products and services. However, due to uncertainties in the responsible utilization of consumer data, the FTC has proposed a new framework to protect consumer privacy. In addition, comprehensive privacy bills have been introduced in Congress. A new framework, if enacted by the FTC or by Congress, is intended to develop and implement best practices and encourage self-regulatory privacy rules for commercial entities that collect, use, maintain, and share consumer information. Companies and their policy makers should have a complete understanding of how this new framework may impact their businesses and/or clients.
The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished thought leaders and key regulators to help you understand the proposed framework for consumer privacy protection and how they impact your firm and your customers. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour live webcast.
