On March 26, 2012, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) released its long-awaited final Commission Consumer Privacy Report, entitled “Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change” (“Final Report”).

The Final Report calls on companies to engage in Privacy by Design, Provide Simplified Choice, and Exhibit Greater Transparency. The FTC also calls on Congress to develop baseline privacy legislation. Over the next year, the FTC will focus on encouraging voluntary adoption of further privacy protections and will focus its policymaking efforts on five main action items: “Do Not Track” Browser Standard; Mobile; Data Brokers Disclosure & Consumer Data Access; Large Platform Providers; and Commerce’s Development of Enforceable Self Regulatory Codes.

In this teleseminar, Reed Smith privacy attorneys Paul Bond, Chris Cwalina, Amy Mushahwar, Nick Tyler and Christine Nielsen addressed some of the highlights from the report, including the scope of covered information, the de-identified data standard, data broker best practices, mobile data compliance, privacy by design, privacy policy transparency, global interoperability, prospects of convergence with international data privacy laws, and increased consumer choice (with a discussion of the budding Do-Not-Track browser standard).
