Data storage and privacy issues are top of mind for businesses storing more and more of their customer’s valuable information. While best practices exist, they are a patchwork at best, and currently there are is no regulatory body solely responsible for standards protecting sensitive data. Increasingly, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has involved itself as a regulatory body, protecting consumer data and holding those with shoddy storage tactics accountable with fines and legal action.
Because it’s at the confusing crossroads of technology and customer management, understanding your company’s compliance obligation in the face of increased FTC enforcement is critical to both the reputation of your company and the protection of customer data.
With that in mind, on Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. ET, Symantec presents: The Federal Trade Commission on Fraud, Deception, & Data Privacy Enforcement Actions an informative web cast that will explore what you should know about FTC action in the privacy space.
Joining the conversation will be attorney Katherine E. McCarron, from the Federal Trade and Matthew D. Nelson, e-discovery Counsel Symantec.
McCarron is an attorney with the FTC’s Division of Privacy and Identity Protection in Bureau of Consumer Protection. This division of the Commission has the responsibility for enforcing federal statutes and regulations that pertain to information security and consumer privacy, making McCarron an ideal candidate to give businesses a window into FTC operations.
Nelson is the author of the legal industry’s first straightforward overview of predictive coding technology titled, “Predictive Coding for Dummies.” He is an attorney and legal technology expert with more than a decade of experience helping organizations address electronic discovery, regulatory compliance, and other information governance related challenges
Together, McCarron and Nelson will give insight into FTC enforcement strategies, outline guidelines for the prevention of data breaches and discuss what a Civil Investigative Demand means for a company. In a space as nebulous as data security and privacy this webinar should provide insight allowing for a more complete approach to information storage.
