About the Speech:

Protecting consumers and empowering entrepreneurship through competition have been the foundation of U.S. innovation policy for decades. As the top U.S. consumer protection and antitrust enforcement agency, the Federal Trade Commission plays a central role at the federal level in setting U.S. policy on consumer privacy and data governance.

Commissioner McSweeny addressed the strengths and weaknesses of the U.S.’s enforcement-based approach to these issues, its implications for global digital markets and some of the new technological frontiers facing enforcers, including the role of algorithms and machine learning in high velocity computerized markets.    

About the Speaker:

Terrell McSweeny became Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission on April 28, 2014. 

Prior to joining the Commission, McSweeny served as Chief Counsel for Competition Policy and Intergovernmental Relations for the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division.  She joined the Antitrust Division after serving as Deputy Assistant to the President and Domestic Policy Advisor to the Vice President from January 2009 until February 2012; advising President Obama and Vice President Biden on policy in a variety of areas, including health care, innovation, intellectual property, energy, education, women’s rights, criminal justice and domestic violence.

McSweeny is a graduate of Harvard University and Georgetown University Law School.
