I found an old favorite Medium post on the complications of enforcing the General Data Protection Regulation. If you'd like to nerd out on international privacy law, here's the article.
It looks like 'tis the season for conferences. The IAPP just announced their Privacy. Security. Risk. Online. series of web events. Let's hear it from the IAPP:
"P.S.R. Online is the top series of web events focused on the intersection of privacy and technology. It features expert-led live and recorded sessions focused on key topics in the fast-developing field of privacy engineering. Sessions will explore issues such as consumer backlash against tracking technology, creating non-discriminating AI products, building high-performing privacy programs on a shoestring and more."
Best of all, access to the sessions is free IAPP members and they get to earn up to 12 CPE credits as well. Head on over to the IAPP website for more information. Some of the sessions are accessible now.
Still on the topic of conferences, the Annual Privacy Forum for 2020 takes place online as well on 22-23 October. The Forum is organized by the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA), European Commission, and Católica University of Portugal, Lisbon School of Law. European Data Protection Supervisor Wojciech Wiewiorowski leads the speaker line-up, joined by representatives from the European Data Protection Board, ENISA, NIST, CNIL, Future of Privacy Forum and members of the academe and private sector.

Interested in learning more about privacy, security, and data governance? You can still catch the few remaining hours to register for Trustweek 2020. This year's OneTrust User Conference happens all online and, best of all, registration is free. If you want to know if this conference is for you, check out the agenda here.
(Edited to add: The sessions are recorded and you can catch them on demand if you're unable to join the live broadcast. If you're not focused on joining the discussion but registered to the conference primarily to learn, this is actually better because you have more opportunity to absorb the material.)
This is off-topic but I am sharing this tweet and urging you to check out the whole thread on Twitter. In the midst of all the debate, it is important to take a step back and really think about what our choices say about who we are as a people.
