On September 29, the FTC announced it will host an “informational injury” workshop on December 12 to examine the types of injuries consumers face when information about them is misused , as well as the tradeoffs when collecting, using, or sharing consumers’ personal information. In preparation for the workshop, the FTC is seeking public input concerning a range of issues such as (i) the types of qualitative consumer injuries resulting from privacy and data security incidents; (ii) the best ways to assess or quantify injury; and (iii) the cost benefit analysis of collecting, using, and sharing information when facing potential injury. The FTC will accept comments through October 27.
