Creating a Safer Internet Economy

Welcome to

Consumer Security and Privacy

Our members are dedicated to a consumer-friendly internet, ensuring the protection of security and privacy every step of the way. Whether in app development, marketing, sales, or technical support, we are committed to an internet economy where responsible businesses thrive and consumers are respected.

Trusted Advocacy and Transparency

We provide regulators with insight from our members so regulators can shape better standards, and provide our members with clarity about privacy and security regulations so they can better serve consumers. Chaos and uncertainty about security and privacy regulations have plagued the internet for far too long, and it’s high time that changed. A safer and healthier internet depends on it.

Best Practices members have access to online resources, expert guidance, and in-person events to help them satisfy compliance requirements while delivering valuable experiences to their users.


On the afternoon of January 8, 2019, at the Bally’s Hotel in Las Vegas, we will host our first Summit, open to all members and invited guests. Join our mailing list for updates to come!
Our second webinar, focused on coercive software apps includes commentary and examples from industry leaders showing what they’ve tried, what results they’ve seen, and what they’re trying next. A must-watch webinar for anyone in the software monetization space!
Join our community of digital service and software developers, vendors, and promoters who are dedicated to creating a safer internet where responsible businesses thrive and consumers are respected.
If you’re among those who share our values and would like to learn more about what means to the ecosystem, you can get all the latest news by signing up for our mailing list. We’d love to have you!
