FTC Releases Agenda for September 9th “Start with Security” Conference

The FTC has announced its agenda and panelists for its conference on data security, which will be held on September 9, 2015 at University of California Hastings College of the Law, in San Francisco.

This is the first in a series of conferences aimed at helping small- to medium-sized businesses protect consumers’ information. It comes on the heels of the FTC’s recent publication, Start with Security: A Guide for Business, which included a list of “best practices” related to data security.

The conference will focus on the challenges faced by start-ups and developers in creating secure applications. Panels will feature experts from Dropbox, Pinterest, Twitter, Mozilla, and other technology companies, and will provide information about (1) security by design, (2) common security vulnerabilities, (3) strategies for secure development, and (4) vulnerability response. Chairwoman Edith Ramirez will deliver remarks at the event.

The all-day conference will begin at 10:00 am Pacific.

The second Start with Security event will be on November 5, 2015, in Austin, Texas.
