  • Sensitive Data Tsunami: A New Wave of Sharing Sensitive Health Data in the U.S.
    Andrea Leeb, CIPP/US, CPO, Cal INDEX (California Integrated Data Exchange); Molly McCoy, CIPP/US, CPO, Privacy Counsel, Blue Shield of California; Alya Sulaiman, CIPP/US, Legal Counsel and Privacy Director, Cal INDEX (California Integrated Data Exchange) will discuss the delicate balance between allowing patients to benefit from innovative models of care and protecting their privacy. Disparate, and often conflicting, federal and state privacy laws further complicate this issue. Both 2015 and 2016 have brought landmark proposed and enacted legislation and regulations governing how and when covered entities and their business associates are permitted to share behavioral health, substance abuse and other sensitive data.
  • The FTC’s Big Data Report: What You Need to Know 
    Jennifer Barrett Glasgow, CIPP/US, CPO Emeritus, Acxiom; Maureen Ohlhausen, Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission; Lydia Parnes, Partner, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati will discuss the concerns that some have in regards to big data techniques that might harm consumers. In January 2016, the Federal Trade Commission released a report exploring these issues. That report, “Big Data: A Tool for Inclusion or Exclusion?” summarizes an FTC workshop and other research on the benefits and risks of big data for consumers, particularly low-income, disadvantaged and vulnerable consumers. The discussion will also examine laws that potentially apply to uses of big data.
  • Privacy, Ethics and Enabling the Student Data Analytics Revolution
    Sol Bermann, CIPP/US, Privacy Officer, IT Policy and Compliance Strategist, University of Michigan; Mike Daniel, Director, Policy and Operations, Office of Digital Education and Innovation, University of Michigan; Kent Wada, CPO and Director, Strategic IT Policy, UCLA will explore how colleges and universities are increasingly leveraging big data and data science to improve student learning outcomes and retention and graduation rates. Predictive analytics promises to widen the pathways for student success by mining through troves of data and personalizing the education experience. However, this also raises critical privacy and ethical concerns.
