Onward into 2011 - the Commerce Department Privacy "Green Paper"

Happy New Year to our readers!

The Commerce Department and the Federal Trade Commission's privacy initiatives are proceeding apace in this new year.   We've prepared a summary of the Commerce Department's "green paper" that can be read here:  Commerce Privacy Report Summary.

In the coming days, we will also post a comparison of the Commerce and FTC privacy initiatives.  Comment periods are winding down this month and it is important for stakeholders to participate in each of these proceedings by filing comments responding to the questions each agency poses.
