PrivacyCon2019

June 27

Hosted by the Federal Trade Commission

In Person (Washington, D.C.) – June 27, 2019

The FTC will be hosting its fourth annual PrivacyCon on June 27, 2019. For PrivacyCon 2019, the FTC is seeking research presentations on a wide range of consumer privacy and security issues, with a particular focus on the economics driving those issues. The call for presentations sought empirical research responding to several questions, including:

  • What new privacy and security issues arise from emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality?
  • What are the greatest threats to consumer privacy today?
  • How can one quantify the costs and benefits to consumers of keeping data about them private?
  • What are the incentives for manufacturers and software developers to implement privacy and security by design in their goods or services and keep security up to date?
  • Is there evidence that the market is able to provide efficient levels of privacy and data security?
