The Federal Trade Commission and the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law will co-host a half-day public workshop on how businesses can secure personal information and protect the privacy of consumers and employees. The workshop is presented in partnership with the International Association of Privacy Professionals. It will feature business people, attorneys, government officials, privacy officers, and other experts who will provide practical guidance for businesses of all sizes on data security, privacy, developing an appropriate data security program, and responding to data breaches and other privacy and security problems.
Under the Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) or other laws, we may be required to disclose to outside organizations the information you provide when you pre-register. The Commission will consider all timely and responsive public comments, whether filed in paper or electronic form, and as a matter of discretion, we make every effort to remove home contact information for individuals from the public comments before posting them on the FTC website.
