The FTC should enforce strong national privacy standards that won’t take away from the state enforcers, Victoria Espinel, CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance, said. The FTC and state attorneys general have successfully shared enforcement powers under the Childrens’ Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), she said.
