Please join Ballard Spahr's Privacy and Data Security Group for an interactive, one hour CLE presentation focused on cybersecurity issues.

Because the FTC has not yet promulgated formal regulations governing data security and privacy–but rather regulates by consent decree–it  is critical for companies with a significant online presence to understand the agency’s current views and approaches toward data privacy and security.

During this CLE presentation, we will provide background on the FTC’s central role in regulating data privacy and security and review recent, relevant FTC enforcement decisions. We also will provide our legal assessment of the current risk environment.


  • Overview of Data Breaches
  • Regulatory Environment
  • FTC Privacy Enforcement Actions Q&A
