The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on Federal Privacy Legislation in 2011 Live Webcast

New York, NY, April 20, 2011 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “Federal Privacy Legislation in 2011 Live Webcast.” This two-hour event is scheduled June 23, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET.

Event Synopsis

Businesses are collecting, sharing, using and retaining more information about people than ever before. With so much information flying around in cyberspace, the commercial use of personal information is receiving serious attention by lawmakers and regulators. In Congress, various legislative proposals have been introduced, including an “Online Privacy Bill of Rights” in the Senate co-sponsored by Senators Kerry and McCain and numerous proposals in the House. The bi-partisan attention to privacy by lawmakers is unprecedented.

This webcast will address these important issues:

- What changes in the law are being proposed?
- What would the various proposals do to improve privacy, and what would they do to affect online and offline commerce?
- What are the prospects for privacy legislation becoming law?
- Even if no new privacy law emerges this year, what do businesses need to do to address privacy requirements in this fast-moving regulatory environment?

A panel of privacy law experts from the world of law practice, consumer advocacy and regulation will discuss the latest consumer policy guidance covered in this legislation in a two-hour live Webcast presented by the Knowledge Group.
