Do you know what kind of data your smartphone apps are collecting?

Understanding the flow of data, how it is shared, and whether your apps collect sensitive information such as mobile payments or location-based data is critical to avoiding regulatory scrutiny and litigation risks.

This webinar explored this uncharted legal territory. Topics of discussion included:

  • The mobile ecosystem, including data flows and parties involved.
  • Privacy and security considerations, including unintended data uses.
  • Current issues in the legal landscape, including media coverage; inquiries and actions from Congress, the FTC, and FCC; litigation risks; and industry activity.
  • Emerging rules for the road” for developing and marketing mobile apps.

This webinar addressed the privacy and information security questions that are top of mind for anyone involved in developing, marketing, selling, or serving mobile apps.
