IAF Briefing on Legitimate Data Use at FPF – May 12


IAF will present a “Briefing On Assessment Processes to Achieve Assurance That Data Use is Legitimate and Not Unfair” at the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) in Washington, DC, during the morning of May 12. Session speakers will include FTC Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen, Jenner & Block Partner Mary Ellen Callahan, and IAF Executive Director Marty Abrams. The discussion will examine how assessments to establish legitimate interests as a legal basis to use data compare with assessments for unfair practices in the United States.
