Rep Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is hosting a technology roundtable on online privacy June 29 in New York.
She signaled last month that she would conduct a series of roundtables on tech issues. This one, co-hosted by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), comes the same day that the Senate Commerce Committee will be holding an online privacy hearing back in Washington. A number of bills on issues including do-not-track and data security have been introduced, while the Commerce Department, the administration and the Federal Trade Commission are currently reviewing existing online privacy protections and encouraging self-regulation by the industry. "Online commerce is reaching a tipping point as consumers become more and more concerned about their private data," Rep Blackburn said. "I hope to hear how the tech industry is approaching this problem, what Washington can do to help and where Washington needs to get out of the way."
