New York, NY, May 15, 2015 –(PR.com)– The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, brings together the world’s leading authorities and industry participants through informative two -hour webcasts. It has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA): Updates in 2015 Live Webcast.” This two-hour event is scheduled on May 21, 2015 from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm (ET).
During the 1990s, the Internet became a major source of products and services for adults and children; by 1998, approximately 10 million US children were using the Internet. The design of web browsers enabled the collection of information about Internet users and un-scrupulous marketing to children and the collection of their personal information led to calls for legislation.
Critics claim that the FTC’s verification methods – facsimile and mailing of signed forms, credit card numbers, or forwarding digital signatures by e-mail – are too in-adequate, slow, costly, and cumbersome. In addition, children may circumvent the restrictions, and the process exposes parents to risk of credit card fraud. Some sites must comply despite not selling to children (e.g., Amazon.com). First Amendment issues of the right to communicate anonymously also come into consideration.
Recently, the FTC has not adequately enforced COPPA or has failed to act promptly.
In a two hour, live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the most significant issues, ambiguities, and latest updates of The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
Key issues include that will be covered in this course are:
– COPPA Rules
– Protecting Children’s Personal Information
– Compliance Risks
– COPPA Enforcement
– Regulatory Developments
