NTIA Scraps Sept. 19 Mobile App Privacy Meeting


NTIA has canceled its planned Sept. 19 stakeholder meeting on mobile app privacy so that those stakeholders can first attend informational briefings with app developers, including a Sept. 19 briefing that will sub for the NTIA-hosted meeting.

NTIA is holding a series of stakeholder meetings to facilitate a framework for enforcing the Obama Administration's privacy Bill of Rights, and decided to begin by tackling mobile apps.

At the last meeting on Aug. 29, various stakeholders, including public interest groups, suggested that before the next meeting the priority was to get a better understanding of just what his happening in the mobile app space, and industry players agreed to conduct briefings, now scheduled for Sept. 13, 14, 19, and 28.
