Last week, RILA hosted 36 privacy executives from 22 retail companies for an annual meeting of the Association's Privacy Leaders Council. The meeting was hosted in Washington, DC, where the conversation around consumer privacy has been heating up over the last several months.
As retailers think about their approach to privacy and their role as actors in one of the most consumer-facing industries in our economy, the meeting was an opportunity for privacy executives to benchmark and network with peers, learn from operational experts and policymakers, and share leading practices.
Starting out the day, attendees were joined by Rohit Chopra, commissioner at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), who shared insights into the FTC's enforcement practices and privacy priorities for the year.
The group was also joined by Daniel Clarke, president of IntraEdge Products and Solutions, who presented on leveraging technology for privacy compliance. Attendees also participated in a robust benchmarking session on key privacy topics, including strategy and governance, data lifecycle management, individual rights processing, third party accountability, and training and awareness.
