Deciphering and Responding to the Nuances of “Personal Information” to Stay in Line with Changing Regulations and Definitions

Modern data privacy laws define “personal information” broadly as data relating to an identifiable individual. But what makes a person “identifiable,” and what techniques can be employed to de-identify data to loosen or eliminate the controls imposed by data privacy laws? This session will explore the various approaches to defining “personal information” and the implications for data analytics.

Building a Privacy Structure that Supports Continued Compliance

Understanding the benefits & challenges of using GDPR as a roadmap for CCPA Compliance

Global organizations have a small advantage when it comes to CCPA in that they have already made the adjustments necessary to comply with GDPR. It would be false, however, to assume that adhering to the one prepares you completely to adhere with other. Whitney McCollum led GDPR efforts for AECOM and will bring her expertise to bear in explaining how it can help as a roadmap for CCPA and where it could lead you astray.

Panel: Uncovering The Known Knowns and The Known Unknowns in State Privacy Legislation as a First Step to Action

Building Products with Privacy by Design

Many organizations have found that the best way to ensure privacy compliance is to build it into all products from the ground up. If you make privacy an inherent part of your products you can breathe more easily when it comes to analyzing how those products are used.

Balancing Compliance Investment vs Risk Exposure – Making Privacy Work for Your Company

One way to ensure complete customer privacy would be to collect no data whatsoever. That approach would, however, completely cripple most businesses and it is not the actual stated goal of most privacy laws. Somewhere between forgoing all data and facing privacy-related enforcement actions lies a sweet spot that balance compliance with risk in order to ensure your business does not lose unnecessary steam on the tracks laid by new statutes.
