Hyperconnectivity has created an environment where troves of data moves around the world and back again at the speed of light. While this rapid and easy movement of information has advantages, it also presents challenges. Specifically, how can individuals, businesses, and governments protect that data? Complicating an already daunting task is how we protect data and personal privacy when it might be government actors and representatives that pose risks.

FTC Commissioner Julie Brill will focus on how regulatory bodies, such as the FTC, can continue to operate in a transnational, hyperconnected world. Specifically, Commissioner Brill will address questions such as what is the primary role of the FTC in protecting data, what regulatory concerns are most pressing for the FTC and who are the actors that pose the biggest risk to data security and privacy?

This event is cosponsored by the Center for Digital Strategies and Center for Global Business and Government and is part of the Killingstad Global Insights Series.
