Random Privacy Updates #2

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.
