With special opening remarks by the Honorable Maureen K. Ohlhausen, Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission

Consumer protection is a shared responsibility between companies, industries and the public sector. As consumer expectations for transparency and corporate responsibility continue to evolve, so too must the approaches industries use to safeguard the public. Senior executives from three industries will discuss initiatives undertaken by each organization to institute self-regulation frameworks that ensure a commitment to high ethical standards and consumer protection. Panelists will also exchange ideas about the future of self-regulation and how their approaches may evolve.
Don’t miss what these leading industry executives have to say about self-regulation and consumer protection — today and tomorrow.
