Web 1.0 and 2.0 have come and gone. We can now see a future of connected devices, the possibilities presented by social sharing, big data analysis, consumer wearables collecting our most sensitive bodily changes, and ubiquitous mobile computing. American consumers consistently express concern about the collection of their information from business and the government alike. With this better focus on the future, isn’t it time to craft a flexible, future-proof set of rules to safeguard consumers’ privacy while allowing for innovation?

Yet some say it’s too soon to place rules on the collection, use, and transfer of information about consumers. They say the future is still a long way away, consumer expectations of privacy continue to evolve, and we don’t know how data will be used to the benefit of Americans.

Our panel will feature experts who will work through these issues and discuss plans to safeguard user data.
