I previously spoke at an earlier hearing in this series back in September on a panel about consumer privacy protection (video / transcript).  The upcoming hearing focuses on data security.

The data security hearings will include five panel discussions and additional discussion of research related to data breaches and data security threats. The first day’s panel discussions will examine incentives to invest in data security and consumer demand for data security. Discussions on the second day will focus on data security assessments, the U.S. framework related to consumer data security, and the FTC’s data security enforcement program.

The event will be at the FTC Constitution Center Auditorium, 400 7th St., SW, Washington, DC.

Here is the schedule for the event:
