FTC priorities under Biden Administration

U.S. law firm Wilson Sonsini has a good summary of likely FTC priorities.

See https://www.wsgr.com/en/insights/acting-ftc-chairwoman-slaughter-previews-potential-ftc-priorities-under-new-administration.html

Potential key priorities:

  • Requirements in privacy and data security consent orders that represent a departure from the FTC's typical approach to consumer notice and disgorgement, including requirements that companies "disgorge" the data and benefits that they amassed through their allegedly wrongful behavior, and provide notice to consumers of the FTC settlement and the conduct at issue in the settlement; and
  • Increased FTC scrutiny of health apps, facial recognition technology, algorithms and AI, and other issues related to the pandemic and racial equity, particularly where those issues fall under the purview of the FCRA or ECOA.
