Mission Viejo, CA (PRWEB) June 4, 2010
Ron Zayas, cofounder of 360 Business Consulting, has been invited to attend a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) roundtable to review the Commission's Children's Online Protection Act (COPPA) Rule.
Zayas will participate in a panel discussion entitled "Emerging Parental Verification Methods, including Parental Access to and Review of Children's Personal Information."
"I'm very excited to have the opportunity to be a part of this important event," Zayas said. "Through 360 Business Consulting and its affiliates, our team has always been active in helping clients with online security and marketing issues, and helping responsible companies succeed while limiting the amount of personal information disseminated online."
The Rule was enacted in 2000 and requires Website operators to obtain parental consent before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under 13. The roundtable will explore such topics as whether the Rule should be applied to emerging media such as mobile devices, interactive television, and interactive gaming, and potential expansion to cover more items of information that might be collected from children. A review will also be conducted of the parental verification methods used by Web site operators.
"This is an important subject, and we welcome any chance to work with other interested parties to improve online child protection and security, as well as parental access and verification," Zayas said.
