The International Association of Privacy Professionals will bring its privacy knowledge to European cybersecurity summit Messe München Command Control 2020 in Munich, Germany, March 3 and 4.
The summit will feature discussions on a variety of cybersecurity topics from more than 50 speakers, including Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Brittany Kaiser, who will open the two-day event as its keynote speaker. The main theme of the program is cyber resilience.
Data privacy and cybersecurity are interrelated and becoming more so in this digital world, said IAPP Europe Managing Director Paul Jordan, who will moderate a panel discussion titled “Managing secure privacy programs now and in the future.” He will be joined by Allianz Group Chief Protection Officer Philipp Raether, CIPP/E, also a member of the IAPP’s board of directors, and eBay Chief Privacy Officer Anna Zeiter, CIPP/E, CIPM.
“As we increasingly go into digital mode across the world, increasing digitalized services, companies need to understand what data they have,” Jordan said. “As we digitalize, more and more companies will have these digital data maps with which they can start to build out robust privacy programs, but also that will start to feed into cybersecurity.”
During the panel discussion, Jordan, Raether and Zeiter will discuss the latest information on data protection and governance, challenges to date and key topics moving into the future, for instance, privacy by design and default, as well as artificial intelligence.
Organizations have not yet started to see data privacy and protection “as a game-changer,” Jordan said. But the pervasiveness of global legislative development — with the implementation of the California Consumer Privacy Act and EU General Data Protection Regulation, as well as progress on privacy legislation in India and elsewhere — has “put an onus on privacy and data protection as a potential risk to their business, whereas in the past, it wasn't probably so much of a risk,” Jordan said.
“As a result of the GDPR and CCPA, we will see in coming years a greater emphasis on the actual articulation and emphasization of robust privacy programs being implemented and going into effect,” he said.
