FTC Online Privacy; Personal Data Mining Report Author Interviewed on CyberLaw and Business Report
Peder Magee, a senior attorney in the Federal Trade Commissions Division of Privacy and Identity Protection, recently granted an exclusive interview to Internet Law Center founder Bennet Kelley that aired Wednesday on Cyber Law and Business Report.
On Tuesday, Magee drafted the FTC's final report setting forth best practices for businesses to protect the privacy of American consumers and give them greater control over the collection and use of their personal data. On Wednesday, Magee expressed the FTCs sentiment as detailed in the report.
