As promised in our teleseminar last week, we have digested the Department of Commerce Privacy green paper, entitled, “Commercial Data Privacy and Innovation in the Internet Economy: A Dynamic Policy Framework”. The green paper will kick start an ongoing discussion of privacy and we encourage organizations to undertake some cost-benefit analysis now for the best outcome in 2011. Time is of the essence and comments to this green paper are due on January 28, 2011. To learn more about this important release, please read our recent client alert.
