FTC tightens Children's Online Privacy Protection Act

Kids' online privacy is once again front and center today. But this time the Federal Trade Commission is attempting to tighten it's grip on the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) - in particular, the collection of personal data from children's websites/services and also to create a more concrete definition of personal information.

Tomorrow I will be speaking about such issues at BlogHer's Keeping Things Private in a Public, Digital World discussion (#BH12outmywindow), with NY Times moderator Jennifer Preston (@NYT_JenPreston), and fellow panelists Lynne Seitz (@LynneSeitz - expert in mobile solutions/apps) and Vicky Colf (SVP Digital Solutions & Tech Operations - Warner Bros).

The Keeping Things Private in a Public, Digital World session, sponsored by Outmywindow, will take place August 3rd in the Nassau Suite Room (2nd floor Hilton, NYC) from 1:15 - 2:30.

 
I hope to see you there for conversation about a most important topic at another incredible BlogHer event!
