The Federal Trade Commission, a US agency created in 1914 to police the problem of 'bigness', has evolved into the most important regulator of information privacy - and thus innovation policy - in the world. Its policies profoundly affect business practices and serve to regulate most of the consumer economy. In short, it now regulates our technological future. Despite its stature, however, the agency is often poorly understood by observers and even those who practice before it. This volume by Chris Jay Hoofnagle - an internationally recognized scholar with more than fifteen years of experience interacting with the FTC - is designed to redress this confusion by explaining how the FTC arrived at its current position of power. It will be essential reading for lawyers, legal academics, political scientists, historians and anyone else interested in understanding the FTC's privacy activities and how they fit in the context of the agency's broader consumer protection mission.

»Unwiderstehlich... Ein Liebeslied über den Ort, an dem ihre Familie seit Generationen lebt, aber ein Liebeslied voller Fragen und Zweifel.« Michiko Kakutani, New York Times Joan Didion wurde in Sacramento geboren und verbrachte die meiste Zeit ihres Lebens in Kalifornien. In Woher ich kam spürt sie der Geschichte und den Mythen dieses Landstrichs nach, und denen ihrer Familie, die seit vielen Generationen an der Westküste beheimatet ist. Sie beschreibt vornehmlich die weibliche Ahnenreihe, aus der sie stammt, von der Ur-ur-ur-ur-ur-Großmutter Elisabeth Scott, geboren 1766 in Virginia, bis zu ihrer Mutter Eduene Jerrett Didion, die 2001 starb und in Joan Didions Augen viele der »Verwirrungen und Widersprüche kalifornischen Lebens« verkörpert hatte. Sie schreibt über die Pioniersfrau und die Rodney-King-Unruhen im Los Angeles der 90er Jahre, über den Bau der ersten Eisenbahn und die kalifornische Besessenheit mit Gefängnissen, und immer wieder über die eigene, höchst wechselvolle Beziehung zu ihrer Heimat.

Firms are collecting and analyzing customer data at an ever increasing rate in response to evidence that data analytics (precision targeting, improved selling) generates a positive return. Yet efforts often ignore customers’ privacy concerns and feelings of vulnerability with long-term effects on customers’ trust, relationships, and ultimately financial performance. Big data, privacy, and cybersecurity often is relegated to IT and legal teams with minimal regard for customer relationships. This book fills the void by taking a customer-centric approach to privacy. It offers both defensive and offensive marketing-based privacy strategies that strongly position firms in today’s data-intensive landscape. The book also helps managers anticipate future consumer and legislative trends. Drawing from the authors’ own work and extant research, this book offers a compelling guide for building and implementing big data- and privacy-informed business strategies. Specifically, the book: · -Describes the consumer psychology of privacy · -Deconstructs relevant legal and regulatory issues · - Offers defensive privacy strategies · - Describes offensive privacy strategies · Provides an executive summary with the Six Tenets for Effective Privacy Marketing This book will be useful to managers, students, or the casual reader who is interested in how and why big data and consumer privacy are transforming business. Moving beyond summary privacy insights, the book also offers a detailed and compelling action plan for improving performance by protecting against privacy threats as well as developing and implementing offensive privacy strategy. In the future, many firms will be competing through an integrated, customer-centric big data privacy strategy and this book will guide managers in this journey.

Überwachen und Strafen Im Panoptikum, Jeremy Benthams idealem Gefängnis- und Erziehungsbau, werden die Delinquenten permanenter Überwachung durch einen Aufseher unterzogen, der im Mittelpunkt eines kreisförmigen Gebäudes sitzt. Aber zu welchem Zweck? Michel Foucault interpretierte in seinem Werk Überwachen und Strafen (1975) Benthams Bau als Prototyp für die latente Perversion bürgerlicher Aufklärung, die Schizophrenie eines Liberalismus, der stets das Gute will und stets das Böse schafft. Aber stimmt das wirklich? Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von Panoptikum offenbart die Aktualität von Benthams Gedankenwelt. Als Begründer des Utilitarismus und Anhänger des Wirtschaftsliberalismus war er davon überzeugt, dass der Kapitalismus der wahre Schlüssel zum Glück des Menschen ist - und nichts anderes als den Weg zum Glück wollte er mit dem Panoptikum jedem Menschen ebnen. Ebook-Version ohne Interview mit Michel Foucault.

Seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, electronic databases are compiling information about you. As you surf the Internet, an unprecedented amount of your personal information is being recorded and preserved forever in the digital minds of computers. For each individual, these databases create a profile of activities, interests, and preferences used to investigate backgrounds, check credit, market products, and make a wide variety of decisions affecting our lives. The creation and use of these databases—which Daniel J. Solove calls “digital dossiers”—has thus far gone largely unchecked. In this startling account of new technologies for gathering and using personal data, Solove explains why digital dossiers pose a grave threat to our privacy. The Digital Person sets forth a new understanding of what privacy is, one that is appropriate for the new challenges of the Information Age. Solove recommends how the law can be reformed to simultaneously protect our privacy and allow us to enjoy the benefits of our increasingly digital world.

As identity theft and corporate data vulnerability continue to escalate, corporations must protect both the valuable consumer data they collect and their own intangible assets. Both Congress and the states have passed laws to improve practices, but the rate of data loss persists unabated and companies remain slow to invest in information security. Engaged in a bottom-up investigation, Harboring Data reveals the emergent nature of data leakage and vulnerability, as well as some of the areas where our current regulatory frameworks fall short. With insights from leading academics, information security professionals, and other area experts, this original work explores the business, legal, and social dynamics behind corporate information leakage and data breaches. The authors reveal common mistakes companies make, which breaches go unreported despite notification statutes, and surprising weaknesses in the federal laws that regulate financial data privacy, children's data collection, and health data privacy. This forward-looking book will be vital to meeting the increasing information security concerns that new data-intensive business models will have.
