CWAG Panel touches on the challenges of Privacy 3.0

Yesterday, the Conference of Western Attorneys General (“CWAG”) hosted a superb panel entitled “Privacy 3.0 – Emerging Enforcement & Policy Issues” at their annual meeting in Santa Fe, NM.  Featured on the panel were FTC Commissioner Julie Brill, Assistant AG Shannon Smith of the Washington Attorney General’s Office, Professor Chris Hoofnagle of UC Berkeley Law School and Professor Paul Ohm of the University of Colorado’s Law School.

The panelists discussed the enforcement approach to privacy and data security in the 1.0 (notice and choice) and 2.0 (harm-based analysis) eras – and how this approach may need to change in the current age given continuing challenges: the emergence of scholarship showing that “anonymization” is a fallacy, the continuing struggle to create clarity around key terms used in privacy, and the need to educate consumers about basic privacy concepts.  The panel also discussed the States’ approach to some of these developments – such as the Massachusetts data law.

You can view the full webcast on CWAG’s site.

Disclosure: I worked with CWAG to help pull this panel together.
