' Nomination, P004807
I am writing to respectfully nominate myself to serve on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Advisory Committee on Online Access and Security.
I have been involved in the privacy debate from a policy standpoint over the same time frame working closely with our key trade associations (American Business Press, Magazine Publishers of America, Direct Marketing Association, Association of American Publishers and the U.S. Council for International Business, to name a few) on privacy issues and industry guidelines. We also organized and co-hosted the first Multi-Industry Forum on Customer Privacy on the Web in 1998, and participated in numerous industry outreach programs.
Additionally, I have worked with Congress, the Commerce Department and FTC staff on these issues since 1997 as a strong proponent of industry self-regulation. I have co-authored with my fellow Co-Chair of our Corporation's Privacy Steering Committee, Katherine Roome, Vice President and Associate General Counsel, numerous comments submitted to both agencies on privacy issues, including comments focused on the FTC's proposed rules implementing the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.
Thank you for your consideration. If chosen, I will commit to making myself available to provide this Committee with the focus and time necessary.
Cynthia H. Braddon
