9:00 AM Morning Panel Q&A
US privacy law is increasingly being eclipsed by the GDPR. In this discussion, we will explore what is happening in the GDPR’s shadow in the U.S. and the rest of the world: a new slate of FTC Commissioners, a different approach to privacy at the FCC, and a range of state-based privacy efforts. What is in store for the future? What will be the role of the APEC nations? How will the regulatory landscape evolve over the next few years? What role can US privacy law play in a post-GDPR world?
