Sometimes you want to read all 209,117 words of Moby Dick.  Other times a haiku will do.  Sometimes you want an in-depth analysis of the FTC’s enforcement, rulemaking, research, education, and international efforts related to privacy and data security.  Other times a summary will suffice.

If you’re long on interest but short on time, the FTC’s new 2014 Privacy and Data Security Update was written with you in mind.  Covering initiatives between January 2013 and May 2014, the bullet-point digest highlights key cases touching on privacy, data security, credit reporting, financial privacy, the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework, children’s privacy, and Do Not Call.  The Update also lists the privacy- or security-related rules the FTC has put in place since 2000 at the direction of Congress, recent workshops on those topics, relevant reports and surveys, educational efforts, and international engagement.

Your clients want to-the-point information about what the FTC is doing in the privacy and data security arena.  Read the Update to stay up to speed.
