This is a private member only event for those who will be in Austin for the IAPP PSR conference, you are invited to join a small group of FPF member companies for an informal breakfast to swap GDPR compliance tips with your peers and share initial thoughts around your approach to CCPA – the discussion will be centered around dealing with requests from data subjects/consumers. We will meet over lunch from 12:00-1:30pm on October 18, 2018 in a private room very close to the conference venue.

PwC’s Jocelyn Aqua and FPF’s Policy Counsels, Gabriela Zanfir-Fortuna and Lauren Smith will co-host the discussion. There is no formal program and no commitment to stay the entire time.  We have held a few of these sessions in different cities and they have been productive.

COPPA at 20: Protecting Children’s Privacy in the New Digital Era @ Georgetown Law | Gewirz Building, 12th Floor
Oct 24 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

COPPA at 20: Protecting Children’s Privacy in the New Digital Era

With Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), FTC Commissioner Rebecca Kelly Slaughter, and other speakers.

Agenda

11:45am – Doors Open

12:00pm – Opening Keynote: FTC Commissioner Rebecca Kelly Slaughter

12:30pm – Panel 1: COPPA at 20: The Evolving Tech Landscape

Much has changed in the twenty years since COPPA was enacted. Connected toys, home IoT devices, and the emergence of major content platforms are changing how children interact with the internet. At the same time, new research has raised concerns about childhood development and addiction. How has COPPA’s implementation evolved over the last 20 years to meet the issues raised by these new developments? What challenges does this new landscape present?

1:45pm – Panel 2: Interpreting COPPA: Key Questions and Challenges

Several key issues in COPPA’s implementation continue to raise questions for companies, advocates, courts and regulators interpreting the law. As large-scale data collection becomes more ubiquitous, new questions emerge regarding COPPA’s application to operators of “general audience”devices.How is “actual knowledge” being interpreted? How has the proliferation of third-party data trackers and complex, multi-sided platforms impacted efforts to assign liability? Has the FTC’s approach to “personal information” been successful, and should more be done?

3:00pm – Panel 3: Enforcing COPPA: Successes, Challenges & Opportunities

COPPA takes a somewhat unique approach to self-regulation. The law includes a provision enabling industry groups or others to submit for Commission approval self-regulatory guidelines that implement the protections of the Commission’s final Rule.Is this approach considered a success? What challenges have regulators and advocates faced in enforcing this Safe Harbor program? What lessons might COPPA have for broader privacy enforcement?

4:30pm – Closing Keynote: Senator Ed Markey (D-MA)

5:00pm – Event Ends

Lunch will be provided.
