What’s Happening Today, Tomorrow and Into the Future: An Update from the Bureau Chiefs

For the 2023 Somos Summit, we have an exciting regulatory session featuring some of the most predominant leaders in the public sector!

Senator Markey


To kick-off 45-minutes of remarkable regulatory ruminations, Ann Berkowitz, Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, Administration and Strategic Policy at Somos, will introduce Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) for special Opening Remarks.

As a consumer champion and member of the Senate’s Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, Senator Markey is a national leader on telecommunications policy, technology and privacy. He was the principal author of many of the laws that govern our nation’s telephone, wireless and broadband communications systems, including the TRACED (Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence) Act, which gave the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) new tools to fight unwanted, and often illegal, robocalls, the top consumer complaint reported to the FCC annually.

  • Trent Harkrader, Chief of the Wireline Competition Bureau, FCC

During the session What’s Happening Today, Tomorrow and Into the Future: An Update from the Bureau Chiefs, attendees will get a unique opportunity to hear directly from the FCC's bureaus on the latest rules and initiatives that are shaping the future of fraud prevention and telecom.
