The FCBA Privacy and Data Security Committee held a CLE program on Monday, January 26, at Drinker Biddle’s offices in Washington, D.C. Communications Partner Doug Bonner moderated the CLE, titled “Connected Cars and other Web-Connected Devices: How will your Data be Protected?”
The program examined the emerging technologies of connected cars, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, and intelligent personal assistants (IPAs) used to manage home automation systems. Doug organized and moderated a group of panelists, including from General Motors, Global Automakers, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Future of Privacy Forum, who explored how growing automobile communications connectivity is raising privacy concerns involving geolocation data, biometric data and driver behavior data. The panel’s discussion focused on the legal and consumer privacy implications of the Consumer Privacy Protection Principles for Vehicle Technologies and Services adopted by the automotive industry which will be effective in January, 2016.
The program was covered in Communications Daily.
