Early this week, the Federal Communications Commission released a 147-page text outlining a set of privacy and security rules for broadband providers. As you prepare for this afternoon’s “The FCC’s Evolving Role in Data Privacy and Security Enforcement,” featuring FCC enforcement head Travis LeBlanc, read DLA Piper Partner Jim Halpert’s take on the proposed rules. Though the proposal is still subject to public comment, and “may change significantly,” privacy pros should care about it, he contends in a post for Privacy Perspectives. “Unless narrowed in the final rule, the FCC’s proposed rules would create major challenges for privacy professionals with responsibilities for broadband Internet access provider customer data,” writes Halpert. “They would also generate considerable consumer confusion about use of consumer data collected online.”
