      PRESS RELEASE



      ISPLA and PICA Represent Industry at FTC Roundtable in Berkeley, CA.



      Dateline: January 28, 2010, Berkeley, CA





      Representatives of Investigative and Security Professionals for Legislative
      Action (ISPLA) and the Professional Investigators of California (PICA) took
      part in the Federal Trade Commission's public roundtable discussion on
      Evolving Consumer Privacy Issues yesterday in Berkeley, CA.



      The first roundtable discussions in this series was on December 7th in
      Washington, D.C. with the focus on exploring the privacy challenges posed by
      the vast array of 21st century technology and business practices that
      collect and use consumer data, including those of professional
      investigators. ISPLA provided the profession's position regarding the
      legitimate need for continued access to information by professional
      investigators.



      The roundtable discussions will consider the risks and benefits of
      information collection and use in online and offline contexts, consumer
      expectations surrounding various information management practices, and the
      adequacy of existing legal and self-regulatory controls to address privacy
      interests. Roundtable participants will include stakeholders representing a
      wide range of views and experiences. The participation of the investigation
      industry is critical to counter-balance the legitimate concerns of privacy
      advocates and other industry forces.



      ISPLA and their state level partner PICA are concerned with the prospect of
      additional regulations and laws that limit the legitimate use of consumer
      information. ISPLA's participation, at the behest of the FTC, reflects on
      the association's reputation among regulators and legislators as a
      significant and reasoned voice for the industry.



      The mission of ISPLA is to monitor and identify critical legislative and
      regulatory issues in order to provide a forum for debate and discussion
      within the investigative and security professions and to serve as an
      advocate for these professions. To find out more about ISPLA and how you can

      PICA's founding was based on the premise the professional private
      investigators are an integral part of the state's legal system. They seek
      recognition by demonstrating to legislators and regulators the critical role
      licensed private investigators fill for the consumer and corporate interests
      in California. To find out how to support the efforts of PICA visit their
