The Obama Administration Privacy Whitepaper: A First Look at National Privacy Policy

The Obama administration has just released the long-awaited whitepaper outlining proposals for a new American privacy framework. The paper—Consumer Data Privacy in a Networked Word: A Framework for Protecting Privacy and Promoting Innovation in the Global Digital Economy—calls for a consumer privacy bill of rights and industry-developed codes of conduct for protecting privacy. Join our panel of experts, including one of the paper’s primary authors, as we summarize, analyze and predict the impact this report will have for businesses in the U.S. and abroad—especially in the EU where a new framework has recently been introduced.

Hogan Lovells Partner and Co-head of the Privacy and Information Management practice, Chris Wolf, will moderate the panel consisting of:

  • Jules Polonetsky, Co-Chairman and Director, Future of Privacy Forum
  • Peter Swire, C. William O’Neill Professor in Law and Judicial Administration, Moritz College of Law, The Ohio State University, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress
  • Omer Tene, Affiliate Scholar, Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School; Senior Lecturer at Israeli College of Management School of Law
