The U.S. Federal Trade Commission announced it will hold hearings in December and February to discuss the agency’s authority to deter unfair and deceptive practice in privacy and data security cases. The Dec. 11–12 hearings will center around data security, and the Feb. 12–13 hearings will cover consumer privacy. Both sets of hearings will be held at the FTC Constitution Center Auditorium. “The FTC has a long record of protecting consumers’ privacy interests through enforcement, education, and policy work,” FTC Chairman Joe Simons said. “The upcoming data security and privacy hearings will provide an opportunity to reexamine the commission’s work in light of changing technologies, legal regimes, and business models.”
