In today's connected world, companies and government organizations are collecting, storing and sharing more information than ever before. The Administration has accelerated its privacy initiatives. The White House earlier this year released a framework for a "Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights." The FTC has stepped up its enforcement activities and released best practices for companies that collect and use consumer data, while noting the limits of its authority under current law. The Department of Commerce's Internet Policy Task Force is conducting a comprehensive review of the nexus between privacy policy and innovation in the Internet economy. Privacy watchdog groups continue to criticize the government over warrantless wiretaps, cell phone tracking, and alleged abuse of National Security Letters to obtain electronic information from recipients without formal process. In the meanwhile, communications service providers and utilities are searching for approaches that balance their commercial interests in handling customer data with their customers' privacy interests.
