ITPI: Privacy, Security, and Competition in a Digital Economy @ Tel Aviv University Jaglom Auditorium | 0

About the Event

Over the past decades, technology companies have created immense economic value through advances in computing and communications, the Internet and mobile, connected devices and the Internet of Things.

These innovations have revolutionized industry sectors ranging from telecoms and media to healthcare, finance, transportation and retail, generating unique benefits for individuals as well as for companies, governments and society at large.

Yet with critics warning about the growth of tech companies to unprecedented size, policymakers have begun to consider the effect of new platforms and business models on competition, the economy, politics and speech.

This debate enriches the already robust discussion about the implications of data-rich technologies for privacy and security. In this session, policymakers, industry leaders and academics discuss the effects of the digital economy on privacy, security, and competition.

They assess ways to regulate tech innovators to protect the rights of individuals and new upstarts without sacrificing progress and economic growth.

PrivacyCon 2019 @ Constitution Center
Jun 27 @ 9:00 am
PrivacyCon 2019 @ Constitution Center | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The FTC will be hosting its fourth annual PrivacyCon on June 27, 2019. For PrivacyCon 2019, the FTC sought research presentations on a wide range of consumer privacy and security issues, with a particular focus on the economics driving those issues. The call for presentations sought empirical research responding to several questions, including:

  • What new privacy and security issues arise from emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality?
  • What are the greatest threats to consumer privacy today?
  • How can one quantify the costs and benefits to consumers of keeping data about them private?
  • What are the incentives for manufacturers and software developers to implement privacy and security by design in their goods or services and keep security up to date?
  • Is there evidence that the market is able to provide efficient levels of privacy and data security?

FTC Chairman Joe Simons will provide opening remarks for PrivacyCon 2019, which will be followed by four sessions of presentations and discussions on research submitted for the event.

The first session will focus on research related to privacy policies, disclosures, and permissions and will feature presentations on research examining such topics as the European Union General Data Protection Regulation’s (GDPR) impact on web privacy. The second session will explore research related to consumer preferences, expectations, and behaviors, including a presentation on historical data related to consumers’ understanding and attitudes about digital privacy and online tracking.

The third session of the day will focus on research related to tracking and online advertising, including a presentation examining paid and free apps. The last session of the day will focus on research related to vulnerabilities, leaks, and breach notifications, including two presentations focused on vulnerabilities affecting Android applications.

The workshop, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 9:15 a.m. ET and will take place at the Constitution Center, located at 400 Seventh St., SW, Washington, D.C. 20024. The event will also be webcast on the FTC website and live tweeted using the hashtag #PrivacyCon19. Registration is not required to attend this event.

DISABILITY ACCOMMODATION

We welcome people with disabilities. The FTC will accommodate as many attendees as possible; however, admittance will be limited to seating availability. Reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities are available upon request. Requests for accommodations should be submitted to Elizabeth Kraszewski via email at [email protected] or by phone at (202) 326-3087.

Information-sharing ecosystems: How they operate and what that means for privacy legislation @ Brookings Institution Falk Auditorium
Jun 27 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Information-sharing ecosystems: How they operate and what that means for privacy legislation @ Brookings Institution Falk Auditorium | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Events like the Edward Snowden leaks, massive data breaches, and the Cambridge Analytica scandal have increased awareness of the data we generate from our devices and our daily lives. We have visibility into some of this data use; social media is very much in the spotlight, and users often wonder what personal information accounts for the advertisements that they are served online. But much less is known about other ways that personal information is collected and shared to support e-commerce, cloud services, business planning, and research of all kinds.

On June 27, as part of its ongoing focus on the privacy debate, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host a public discussion on these information-sharing systems, exploring the ways they operate as well as the individual, societal, and business interests at stake. Following keynote remarks, two panels of experts will take up different aspects of these systems, and how the interests involved should be addressed as Congress considers federal privacy legislation.

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