[youtube=]There’s no doubt consumers love apps. However, negative news reports about alleged abuses of personal information can leave developers vulnerable. New legislation in the US and across Europe means developers could soon be liable to privacy-related prosecutions. The good news is that it’s easy to make apps privacy friendly.

The free session will be led by Todd Daubert, a Partner at MEF Member Dentons and Chair of their legacy Communications and Technology Sectors, as well as a key member of MEF’s Privacy in Mobile Apps Working Group, responsible for the development of the App Privacy Initiative.

The expert panel also includes representatives from AVG, Field Fisher Waterhouse and TRUSTe:

The Future of multi-platform Apps

Each track at Apps World North America features keynote speakers including the likes of Paul Irish, developer advocate for Chrome who is speaking in the HTML5 track, Neal Edelstein, founder and CEO of Hooked Digital Media in the TV Apps and Second Screen track, Nick Evans, CEO & founder of Tile in Developer World and Kristian Segerstrale, co-founder of Initial Capital, in Gaming World. The legendary Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will also return as official keynote.

In total more than 300 speakers and 200+ exhibitors will be present, ensuring the range of knowledge and expertise is unrivalled for the expected 8,000 attendees.

As well as a conference and exhibition, the event will also include seven themed start-up zones where new businesses and entrepreneurs will be showing off what could well be the next big app innovation of tomorrow within specific zones such as Automotive Apps, Indie Games and Wearable and M2M.

The theme of supporting innovation continues with the Apps World series of hackathons too with developers coming together at the show to compete for prizes and glory at both a TV Hackfest and an Apps Hackfest.
