          Kamala Harris '89 to Lead Privacy Workshop for App Developers

          App developers will have an opportunity learn the latest in online privacy enforcement from California Attorney General Kamala Harris ’89 and the UC Hastings Privacy & Technology Project at a daylong workshop designed to encourage consumer privacy and innovation.

          Hosted by the UC Hastings Privacy Project, the April 10, 2013 workshop will provide attendees with an unprecedented degree of insight and resources. Attendees will be able to hear from and directly engage industry leaders, third-party platform operators, regulators, and practitioners. The workshop will cover the evolving privacy space for application developers as companies strive to balance consumer privacy and innovation, and find new ways to innovate on privacy.

          With a keynote speech by California Attorney General Kamala Harris, state and federal regulators will lay out a framework for how policy makers are approaching consumer privacy protection while ensuring innovation. During the workshop industry partners will share success stories of their approach to privacy, and experts will provide real-world lessons for entrepreneurs and companies to incorporate immediately.

          Attorney General Harris released new privacy guidelines for app developers in January 2013. Her office, through its Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit, took additional steps with some companies, such as suing Delta Airlines for collecting personal information from consumers’ mobile phones without full privacy disclosures.

          Confirmed participants include Laura Berger of the Federal Trade Commission, which has issued new guidelines for mobile app developers; Morgan Reed, executive director of The Association for Competitive Technology (ACT); Jonathan Nelson of Hackers & Founders; and Parker Higgins of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). Casey Oppenheim of Disconnect.me will lead a panel on best practices.

          Platinum Support for the event is provided by the Association for Competitive Technology. Munger Tolles & Olson is providing lunch with a working panel. Community partners for the Workshop include Hackers & Founders and sf.citi.

The program runs from 9 AM to 3:30 at Runway SF 1355 Market Street, Suite 488, San Francisco.
