Consumers and citizens want to trust businesses and government with the use of their information. But with rampant data breaches and sloppy or overaggressive use of data, individuals also want to know that steps are being taken to protect them and to earn their trust. The Future of Privacy Forum is an important new venue through which individuals can lead robust dialogues about what is both needed and possible in commercial and government sectors to assure consumers and citizens of the ethical use of their data.
TRUSTe supports this important work and congratulates Jules Polonetsky and Christopher Wolf on today’s launch of The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF). Maureen Cooney, Chief Privacy Officer and Vice President for Public Policy for TRUSTe will serve on the FPF Advisory Board. TRUSTe hopes to contribute to the dialogue and range of solutions, as our mission is to assist in building trust online and business accountability for consumer privacy. Trust in the digital world has never been more important to our economy and in guiding transparency and efficiency in government.
