Episode Notes

When you get a sketchy email, you shouldn’t just ignore it, you should report it to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). They are hard at work protecting professionals from scams and data breaches. In this Special Report, host Cale Johnson talks to Deon Woods Bell and Laureen Kapin about their experiences both with the FTC and with the ABA Antitrust Section. Their conversation ranges from what got them interested in the international aspects of their positions originally, to the hottest topics in international privacy. They conclude with what they’re doing to bring more international colleagues into the ABA and advice for those looking to get involved with the FTC.
