The Honorable Mark Pryor joins MEF members and FTC at 2nd Mobile Privacy Summit in DC

M PryorMEF has announced the agenda for its second annual Mobile Privacy Summit, co-hosted with law firm Dentons next month  in Washington DC.  An impressive lineup of speakers has been announced  including Senate Commerce Communications, Technology, and Internet Subcommittee Chairman Mark Pryor.

Others include policy-makers from the Federal Trade Commission and National Telecommunications and Information Administration, and also mobile privacy experts from Mozilla, AVG Technologies, Evidon and InMobi.

The annual event is part of MEF’s Privacy in Mobile Apps Initiative and will explore different ways companies in the app economy are building consumer trust to support a sustainable future. The free-to-attend session will focus on three key areas:

  • Protecting app users’ privacy: the case for enlightened regulation
  • Building consumer trust: roles and responsibilities across the value chain
  • Striking the balance: consumer versus business interests


MEF’s recent Global Privacy Report identified transparency and data sharing as areas of serious concern for app developers; 33 per cent of global consumers are not at all comfortable sharing any personal information and 70 per cent insist on knowing how their personal information is being used.
