In this initial episode of Ballard Spahr’s new privacy and data security webcast series, Phil Yannella and Greg Szewczyk – co-chairs of the Privacy & Data Security Group – discuss regulatory scrutiny concerning the use of “dark patterns” to steer website visitors into purchasing products or making online choices they otherwise would not make.  This is an area of increased risk for online retailers, digital platforms and tech companies, among others.   Make sure to regularly check the CyberAdviser blog for more 15-20 minute webcasts on emerging trends in the privacy and data security world.
