The Near Future of U.S. Privacy Law @ University of Colorado Law School, Wittemyer Courtroom
Sep 6 @ 9:00 am – 1:30 pm

The year 2019 may be a turning point for data privacy law. Privacy law in the United States is famously a hole-ridden patchwork of state laws, sectoral legislation, and consumer protection. Whether in response to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation or to California’s enactment of its Consumer Privacy Act, over this past year state and federal legislators have been proposing new data privacy laws at an energetic rate.

How will we govern the technology of the near future? Will the United States join the rest of the world in recognizing data privacy rights or will it take its own approach? Will these choices even matter in practice, given the long reach of both EU and California law?

This conference will bring together academics, practitioners, technologists, and regulators to discuss the near future of U.S. data privacy law. Specifically, we will explore municipal bans on surveillance technology, new state privacy laws, the future role of the Federal Trade Commission, and proposed federal legislation.

Those who cannot attend the event in person may also register for the free livestream.

Protecting information privacy: Challenges and opportunities in federal legislation @ Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium
Sep 11 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am
Protecting information privacy: Challenges and opportunities in federal legislation @ Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Recent congressional hearings and data breaches have prompted legislators, advocacy groups, and business leaders to call for broad federal privacy legislation. Furthermore, congressional leaders in both parties have expressed an interest in taking up privacy legislation and various Members of Congress have released drafts of bills intended to spark discussion. As Congress returns to session in September, legislators will face continuing questions about how to develop federal legislation to protect personal information.

On September 11, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host a public discussion on the status of federal privacy legislation. This event, part of Brookings’ ongoing focus on the privacy debate, will examine expected legislation through the eyes of keynote speakers and two expert panels. The first panel, which will be a live taping of the Lawfare Podcast, will look through the broad lens of competing visions of what legislation should accomplish and the impact on businesses and individuals. The second panel will delve into specific issues presented by proposals for legislation, the path forward to passage, and the prospects.

Following the discussion, each panel will take questions from the audience.

How will a national data privacy law affect connected devices, applications and the cloud? @ Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium
Sep 16 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
How will a national data privacy law affect connected devices, applications and the cloud? @ Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

As Congress currently works toward a national data privacy law, how will existing and emerging innovations be impacted, including connected devices, applications, and the cloud? What will be the effects of stronger transparency and disclosure requirements on consumer-facing technologies and companies? What will privacy compliance look like for companies who offer online or cloud-based products and services? How can we protect consumer rights in the emerging world of around-the-clock digital connections?

On September 16, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host a public discussion on how federal legislation should account for a variety of nuanced verticals, including health care, commerce, and education. Panelists will discuss how pending legislation should allow for innovation, while still ensuring greater consumer transparency. The event will also examine the context and application of any new data law and its effect on various online, behavioral activities managed by consumers.

Following the discussion, the panel will take questions from the audience.
