The FTC just issued its 2018 Privacy and Data Security Update – a compendium for attorneys, business executives, and others who are long on interest, but short on time. It summarizes the seven zones that were central to the FTC’s 360° approach in 2018. The 2018 Update leads off with a summary of cases, warning letters, and other actions linked to the resources you’re looking for and summarized by topic:
- General Privacy
- Data Security & Identity Theft
- Credit Reporting & Financial Privacy
- International Enforcement
- Children’s Privacy
- Do Not Call.
How can you use the 2018 Update? Keep it as a handy reference guide, consult the lists and links, reread it when looking for FTC privacy and security resources, and consider it when drafting client alerts, blogs, or social media content about FTC enforcement and policy initiatives.
