The Developers Alliance encourages the FTC to consider the voices of developers in its study of data collection and security.
Washington, D.C. August 12, 2022 –The Developers Alliance has released the following statement addressing the FTC’s request for comment on whether it should implement new data collection and security regulations.
Geoff Lane, Head of U.S. Policy for the Developers Alliance, issued the following statement:
“We look forward to weighing in with the FTC on this important topic. App developers –by nature –are excellent data stewards. Because their livelihoods depend on consumer trust, developers go above and beyond to protect data in use, at rest, and in transit.
It is deeply concerning that the FTC’s starting position on the matter is ‘exploring rules to crack down on harmful commercial surveillance and lax data security.’ Data make our lives easier, healthier, and more convenient. We are anxious to share the views of developers with the FTC, and hope they will take into consideration their thoughts before levying harmful and redundant regulations.”
