Woodrow Hartzog and Danielle Citron write about what we can learn from the recent settlement with Ashley Madison by the FTC and state attorneys general.

They discuss:

  • Privacy is for everyone
  • Harm from a data breach is about much more than identity theft
  • Privacy law and policy must confront the design of technologies
  • The FTC’s cooperation with state attorneys general and the Canadian government is a good thing for privacy enforcement
  • This is the first FTC complaint involving lying bots. There will be more.
