The FTC held a hearing on data security December 11-12, 2018 at the FTC Constitution Center Auditorium, 400 7th St., SW, Washington, DC.

The data security hearings included five panel discussions and additional discussion of research related to data breaches and data security threats. The first day’s panel discussions examined incentives to invest in data security and consumer demand for data security. Discussions on the second day focused on data security assessments, the U.S. framework related to consumer data security, and the FTC’s data security enforcement program.

FTC staff welcomes comments on the data security hearing until May 31, 2019. If any entity has provided funding for research, analysis, or commentary that is included in a submitted public comment, such funding and its source should be identified on the first page of any submitted comment.
