The Federal Trade Commission announced that the September 22, 2020, workshop examining the potential benefits and challenges to consumers and competition raised by data portability will be held online.

The online workshop will bring together consumer advocates, industry representatives, economists, regulators, and other stakeholders for a wide-ranging public discussion on data portability, which is the ability for consumers to move data—such as emails, contacts, calendars, financial information, health information, favorites, friends, or content posted on social media—from one service to another or to themselves.

The agenda, along with information about how to view the event online, will be posted on the event page closer to the date of the event.
