Event Details

App Developer Privacy Summit

Mobile apps and the services they provide have been one of the most exciting areas of innovation in recent years. Many of these new services have been successful because they enable consumers to use data to connect, discover and accomplish in new ways, but the collection and use of consumer data in the complex mobile environment has caused a rise in privacy concerns. To maintain the consumer trust necessary to continue the pace of innovation, the key participants in the app ecosystem need to work together (read more...).

To better understand their respective roles in this new ecosystem, platforms, app developers, carriers, consumers and policymakers are gathering to address current and pressing consumer privacy issues. The Application Developers Alliance and the Future of Privacy Forum, with our partner the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society, will host the App Developer Privacy Summit on April 25, 2012.
