If the Federal Trade Commission were a major league baseball team, it might be fair to view 2022 as a rebuilding year regarding its privacy enforcement authority. 2023, on the other hand, might just be the season that marks the FTC’s long-awaited return to a privacy authority winning streak.
The FTC spent 2022 recalibrating after it suffered setbacks to its privacy enforcement game plan, stemming from low morale, divisive partisanship, and a dearth of resources.
