Engaging Sessions to Enhance Your Privacy Knowledge

Considering Indigenous Privacy Perspectives — Introducing Māori Data Sovereignty

In 2020, the Office of the NZ Privacy Commissioner published a Statement of Intent acknowledging that to be an effective regulator in Aotearoa New Zealand it must begin its journey to understanding privacy through a Te Ao Māori lens (Māori world view). IAPP too is beginning this journey, and we are excited to host this inaugural panel. Panelists will introduce the concept of Māori data sovereignty and, drawing on recent legal developments, discuss the application of the current privacy framework to Māori data. More details on this session, including the panelists and precise topics of discussion, will be announced soon.


The Shape of Things to Come — Review of the Australian Privacy Act

This highly anticipated panel brings together government and regulatory perspectives on the review of the Australian Privacy Act. For the first time since the Act’s 2012 amendments, the IAPP ANZ hosts a government and regulatory panel to discuss potential changes to the Privacy Act. Since the release of the ACCC’s final report on the Digital Platforms Inquiry, the Attorney-General’s Department’s Issues and Discussion papers, public consultations and interim government responses, the Privacy Act is changing. Hear how the Australian Privacy Act is being reshaped, including options and next steps. Learn which sectors are impacted and the current state of play.


Privacy Enhancing Technology

This will be an open discussion evaluating the applicability of PET’s across an organisation including, industry specific use cases, highlight of regulatory direction, overview of standardisation efforts and an explanation of the unique intersect PET’s require between privacy/law/data governance/data ethics/technology adoption/technology interoperability and data collaboration transparency. The panelists will also branch into areas such as ethical AI frameworks and quantum resilient data protection.
