We are pleased to announce that Troutman Sanders partner Ron Raether will be a featured speaker at the American Conference Institute’s 20th Advanced Global Legal and Compliance Forum on Privacy & Security of Consumer and Employee Information, taking place October 13-14 in San Francisco.

Ron will participate on a panel entitled “Big Data in the Privacy Context: Impact of the FTC’s Report on Use of Big Data and a Look into How Big Data will be Regulated in the Future” on October 13.  The panelists will discuss the implications of the FTC’s report, including what businesses can and can’t do with data that they have, what kinds of consent companies should be gathering, what kinds of notice they should be providing to individuals from whom they may collect information, and what an adequate disclosure notice looks like.  Additionally, the discussion will focus on how big data will be regulated in the future and whether any existing laws, such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act, should be used, and if so, expanded to include data brokers.
