Stacey Brandenburg advises clients on privacy, data security, and a range of emerging technology and data-related issues. A veteran of the Federal Trade Commission’s Division of Privacy and Identity Protection, Stacey regularly represents companies in FTC investigations involving Section 5 of the FTC Act, endorsement and testimonial guidelines, and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). She also helps clients navigate State Attorneys General inquiries regarding consumer protection laws, and has favorably negotiated resolutions of these matters.

Stacey works with clients proactively to reduce their regulatory exposure under applicable federal and state privacy, consumer protection, and advertising laws, such as the CCPA. She helps develop thoughtful and workable privacy and security policies, guides implementation, and provides training for employees.

Having years of experience advising companies regarding access to and use of alternate forms of data, such as webscraping, drone, consumer, and other data, Stacey works closely with clients to develop compliance programs that balance legal considerations with business needs. She also assists with due diligence of providers and data sets, reviews agreements, and structures programs to mitigate risk.

Stacey speaks frequently on data, privacy, and technology issues such as at events hosted by Bloomberg, Quandl, Neudata, Privacy & Security Academy, and Women, Influence & Power In Law (WIPL), and previously taught these issues as an adjunct faculty member at American University’s Washington College of Law.
