FTC Chairwoman says, “We Must Not Give Up on Privacy”

edith-ramirezThe Federal Trade Commission has many responsibilities. Amongst other things, it is the primary government agency in charge of protecting the privacy of your personal data. Edith Ramirez, who has served on the commission since 2010 and as its chairwoman since 2013, recently stated:

“The idea that consumers don’t care about privacy is one that I would very aggressively disagree with, because I don’t think the data supports that. If anything, I think that consumers are very concerned, especially since we are hearing about major data breaches with increasing frequency. I think everyone understands that protection of personal information is vital. In my mind privacy is something that companies have to take into account in a very serious way.”
