On July 22, 2010, the FTC testified before the Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection Subcommittee of the US House of Representatives Commerce Committee about FTC efforts to protect consumer privacy and about legislative proposals to improve privacy protections. In its testimony, the FTC described its actions to hold companies accountable for protecting consumer privacy, and particularly on its focus on data security, identity theft, children’s privacy, and on protecting consumers from intrusive spam, spyware, and telemarketing. The FTC also expressed the need for legislation that would give it limited authority to issue privacy rules, including requirements for privacy-related disclosures.
