Consumer advocate Julie Brill leaving FTC

March 22, 2016 | By Jason Kint, CEO – DCN @jason_kint

Julie Brill has been an unwavering advocate for the consumer during her time as FTC Commissioner. DCN had the privilege of hosting her at our event last December “The Consumer Rules: Lessons From Ad Blocking” where I interviewed her on everything from the definition of consumer harm to the notion that privacy today is more about controlling who you communicate with — and how — than seclusion.

Hindsight is 20/20 but many of her concerns over the years related to privacy and consumer trust in the digital ecosystem have come true with the advent of major issues like ad blocking.  I look forward to seeing where her expertise and focus on consumers and privacy takes her as she re-enters the private sector.
