The FTC, Data Security and Beyond

This is another Meetup program sponsored by the High Technology Law Section of the Santa Clara County Bar Association.

Our guest speaker for this month's Meetup is Woodrow N. ("Woody") Hartzog.  We are delighted to have him speak.

FTC privacy jurisprudence has become the broadest and most influential regulating force on information privacy in the United States — more so than nearly any privacy statute or any common law tort.  Woody will address some of the most significant aspects of FTC jurisprudence in the realm of data security as well as less obvious FTC theories of liability and the direction of future complaints for unfair and deceptive actions.

Woodrow Hartzog is an Associate Professor at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law. He is also an Affiliate Scholar at the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School and a contributor at Forbes. His research on privacy, contracts, media, and robotics has appeared or is scheduled to appear in numerous law reviews and peer-reviewed publications such as the Columbia Law Review, California Law Review, and Michigan Law Review and popular publications such as Wired, Bloomberg, New Scientist, The Atlantic and The Nation.

A dial-in will be provided by the day before the conference for those who can't be there in person.  Please indicate on an RSVP if you plan to attend in person.

Please note the new location in downtown San Jose at the Silicon Valley Law Group.

    This is a reminder that we will NOT have a Meetup in July, and will instead pick up with a discussion of cloud robotics, privacy, and security on August 27, 2014, same time.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
