Privacy 2.0: Assessing the U.S. Regulatory Framework and the Chance for Reform

A Digital Policy Institute Webinar Discussion

It’s 2019, the Democrats have a majority in the House of Representatives, and tech policy is ripe for disruption. Coming off a year of political gridlock in Washington, many see 2019 as the year Congress will pass comprehensive privacy legislation – one that both protects consumers and spurs continued investment in the tech sector.

In 2018, we took a look at the privacy debate, but in the last six months, a lot has changed. We will revisit the debate and tackle some of the issues that will likely come out of the 116th Congress. Will the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) be the cop on the beat? Will states beat the federal government in passing legislation? And how can we create a more consistent framework across the entire digital ecosystem?

Please join the Digital Policy Institute on March 11th at 2 p.m. for a discussion with a panel of nationally recognized policy, regulatory and legal experts to discuss the future of privacy policy in the U.S.

Panelists include:

  • Bret Swanson, Visiting Fellow, American Enterprise Institute

  • Jennifer Huddleston, Research Fellow, Mercatus Center

  • Patrick Halley, Senior Vice President, Advocacy and Regulatory Affairs at USTelecom

  • Moderator: Barry Umansky, Senior Fellow and Senior Policy Advisor, Digital Policy Institute
