Date/Time: Monday, April 26, 3:00 – 5:15 p.m. ET

Presented by the FCBA Consumer Protection Committee


With the change in Administration, all eyes are on regulatory and enforcement agencies with stakeholders attempting to read the tea leaves for potential changes in consumer protection priorities—this program will take away the mystery.  The first panel will feature speakers from the FCC, FTC, NAAG, and the BBB to discuss key consumer protection priorities for 2021.  The second panel will further elaborate on these priorities from the practitioners point of view.  Will 2021 present significant shifts in approach?  How do we counsel clients during a “transition” period?  Topics will include digital advertising, robocall mitigation, accessibility, platform regulation, net neutrality, cross-border data transfers (i.e., Schrems), consumer privacy and data security, and ongoing debates over the efficacy of regulatory and enforcement efforts.
