FTC Expands to Include Dedicated Office of Technology and Research


The FTC is starting up a new research sector in a recently formed Office of Technology Research and Investigation (OTRI). The office's goal will be to expand the FTC's capacity to protect consumers in an age of rapid technological innovation. The FTC has always been on the forefront of new technology, several years ago it created a Mobil Technology Unit (MTU) to protect consumers engaged in mobile commerce. However, as technology continues to morph and evolve, it was clear that an expanded effort was needed. The OTRI will be the MTU's successor. And the FTC is hiring, so if you love all things tech, this may be your time to shine! To see more about the expanded effort as well as the positions the FTC has created, visit the FTC's blog.
