Green Lights & Red Flags: FTC Rules of the Road for Business

Event Description

The newest edition of Green Lights & Red Flags: FTC Rules of the Road for Business, a public workshop on truth-in-advertising law, social media marketing, data security, business-to-business fraud, and other business basics, is set to debut — virtually — in Cleveland on October 29 from 1:00-3:45 p.m. Eastern Time.

Designed for business owners, advertising professionals, attorneys, and others who need to know how established legal principles apply in today’s fast-moving marketplace, the free workshop will offer practical insights from Ohio business leaders and recognized experts in consumer protection law and cybersecurity. Andrew Smith, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, will be among the featured speakers.

This year’s Green Lights & Red Flags event is sponsored by the FTC, the Office of the Ohio Attorney General, Better Business Bureau Serving Greater Cleveland, and the Cuyahoga County Department of Consumer Affairs. It continues the popular business workshop series that the FTC has held in past years with regional partners in cities across the county.
