Privacy Chaos in the Fifty States
In this webinar Emily Hackett discusses how state activity and Internet privacy space is effective federal policy. Emily will explain what has happened and what we have to look forward to while detailing what we can do to avoid past mistakes. Additionally, Emily will share how the federal CAN-Spam act preempted almost all of the 36 states spam laws currently enacted, but not all spam laws.
Emily Hackett is the Executive Director of the Internet Alliance. Hackett's belief is that state policy drives global policy which makes this the best job she has had since the White House. Hackett joined the Internet Alliance in 1999, having previously served in key government positions at the White House Office of Management and Budget and the Federal Trade Commission. Prior to that, Hackett spent seven years as a senior staff member at tax-exempt organizations whose primary focus is on the policy implications of the explosive growth of information technology and electronic commerce. Hackett speaks regularly to policy makers, businesses and high school and college students about the impact of the Internet on state governments.
