    Data Ethics: Moving Beyond Privacy into Data Ethics and TrustACCESS NOW

    Broadcast Date: 17 November 2020

    *All sessions are available as recordings after original broadcast date.

    Brought to you by OneTrust and the IAPP

    Promoting a culture of trust that strengthens your brand both internally and externally is no easy feat. Identifying, monitoring and mitigating risk across your business and third parties, as well as creating policies, procedures and codes of conduct across different stakeholders and business units, require ethics to be placed at the centre of an organisation's practices.

    Join us for this privacy education web conference during which we will discuss the practicalities of building an ethics and compliance programme, examining key issues around whistleblowing, third-party due diligence, data risk management and awareness training.

    Further Processing of Cookie Data: Available Legal Bases Under the ePD/GDPRACCESS NOW

    Release Date: 17 November 2020

    *On-Demand Only

    The ePrivacy Directive requires consent to use cookies unless it is necessary for the provision of the service (e.g., cookies used for the shopping basket). However, can organisations using consented cookies further process the collected data for different purposes without obtaining new consent? For example, can cookies used for a shopping basket be further used for audience measurement? Can cookie data used for audience measurement purposes, based on consent, be further processed to predict preferences or behaviour? If so, can one rely on article 6(4)’s GDPR as legal basis, which allows for further processing of data for compatible purposes? Although the ePrivacy Regulation does not define this point, our panel will provide an informative discussion with guidance on a subject with enormous consequences for the ad tech, audience measurement and publishing industries.

    COVID-19, SARS, Influenza — How Businesses Can Weather a (Privacy) PandemicACCESS NOW

    Release Date: 24 November 2020

    *On-Demand Only

    Coronavirus has caused substantial turmoil for people and businesses all over the globe. Governments and companies are reacting to the crisis by collecting massive amounts of personal data, including location, personal relationships, previous illnesses and travel arrangements. Big Data companies are using search terms to predict the spread of the virus, and governments are revealing personal location to alert those who were in the vicinity of an infected patient. While most companies had Business Continuity Plans for a crisis, hardly any of these were created with GDPR in mind. In this session, our expert panellists discuss the several legal implications, such as: what kind of data is required to be processed and how is it protected? How are the rights of the individuals protected, and what happens to the collected information once a global crisis is over?

    The Face Off — How Regulators Will Take on Facial Recognition TechnologyACCESS NOW

    Broadcast Date: 24 November 2020

    The GDPR sets out an ambitious unified privacy approach for the EU, but regulatory practice shows facial recognition technologies are treated differently within countries. While a UK court found it permissible for the South Wales Police to use facial data to identify individuals at a large football match, the Swedish Data Protection Authority issued a fine of around £16,500 to a school board that used cameras in a classroom with the aim of automating the registration process. Examples such as these raise concerns, ranging from privacy to equal treatment. The main issues include lack of transparency and the questionable reliability of algorithms, which could lead to a lack of concise information, biased results and discrimination. Although different jurisdictions may take different tacks, the nature of this technology is global — therefore, national lawmakers and regulators must establish a borderless approach. Hear this roundtable discuss what kind of legal framework may ensure the technology is used in a way that adequately balances concerns with the social and cultural differences among the continents.

    Linking Privacy Programmes and Organisational Accountability ACCESS NOW

    Release Date: 30 November 2020

    *On-Demand Only

    There has been an increasing focus on organisational accountability in privacy in recent years. Accountability is being codified in new privacy laws, regulators continue to produce guidance on accountability via enforcement orders and advisory guidelines and through specific frameworks, including the UK Information Commissioner’s Office Accountability Toolkit. Over the past year, companies with mature privacy management programmes, and members of the Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL), have been mapping their programmes against the CIPL Accountability Framework. This provides concrete evidence that accountability-based privacy programmes can effectively deliver compliance for organisations of all types and sizes and are demonstrable and enforceable. In this session, participating companies will discuss their journey toward creating an accountability-based privacy programme. You will hear what they have learned from the mapping exercise, how organisations can use different tools and frameworks to implement accountability and concrete examples to help you refine your own programme.

    Cookies Aren’t Dead! They Just Need Further Baking ACCESS NOW

    Broadcast Date: 2 December 2020

    *All sessions are available as recordings after original broadcast date.

    Brought to you by Osano and the IAPP

    The writing has been on the wall for some time: The rules surrounding third-party cookies used for online tracking, advertising efforts and even routine website functionality would have to change to accommodate evolving customer expectations of privacy. When Google announced it would phase out third-party cookies earlier this year, it seemed to signal the end had come for their use, and the online advertising industry would need to look for alternatives. But that's not entirely true. Cookies are still a viable way to gain insights and, if utilized properly, can abide by compliance requirements. Join us for this privacy education web conference to hear from industry experts.

    Deutsche DSB über ihre Erfahrungen mit der DSGVOACCESS NOW

    Datum: 3. Dezember 2020

    This session will be delivered in German.

    *Alle Webkonferenzen sind als Aufzeichnungen nach der originalen Übertragung verfügbar.

    In dieser rasanten sechzigminütigen Diskussionsrunde schildern deutsche DSB ihre Erfahrungen seit Einführung der DSGVO. Was waren ihre bislang größten Leistungen? Was stand ihrem Erfolg im Weg? Welche Prozesse haben sie abgeschlossen, nur um sie nach Erhalt neuer Informationen von der Organisation oder neuen Anweisungen von den Aufsichtsbehörden wiederholen zu müssen? Inwiefern unterscheidet sich der Datenschutz in der Praxis von dem in den Gesetzestexten? Das Publikum darf sich auf ähnlich lebhafte und informative Gespräche freuen wie die, die diese Sitzung schon im vergangenen Jahr zu einer der beliebtesten gemacht haben.

    A Delicate Balance Part II: Regulatory Pressures vs. Consumer Privacy Attitudes ACCESS NOW

    Release Date: 7 January 2021

    *On-Demand Only

    The global pandemic has rapidly accelerated society’s reliance on digital platforms and frictionless experiences as we transition abruptly to new ways of working, living and consuming. It has also shifted the parameters of what consumers expect in return for their personal data and their willingness to share it, and how they want organisations and institutions to gather and process their data. Our speakers will discuss findings from the EY Global Consumer Privacy Survey 2020 which seeks to unpack the trend toward changing consumer attitudes.

    2020 IAPP 'Data Governance Report' Review ACCESS NOW

    Release Date: 19 January 2021

    *On-Demand Only

    Throughout most of 2020, privacy professionals were focused on wrestling with the complicated links between working during a pandemic and the data protection and privacy risks that have emerged as a result. In parallel, legislative activity on the data privacy front was accelerated among state and federal authorities around the world, creating a confluence of challenges and concerns for privacy professionals to prioritize.

    IAPP’s annual "Data Governance Report" shows the effects of this complex landscape on privacy departments, including budget, staffing, and regulatory and legal compliance. Please join experts from IAPP and report sponsor FTI Consulting to examine the data and its implications, including an in-depth discussion of major survey themes.
