Dear privacy pros,
We have a relatively light docket of news this week, perhaps because all the action took place at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit 2022, as colleagues from all over the world converged in Washington, D.C., for four days of nonstop learning and networking.
I know that quite a few of you from Singapore and the APAC region were among the delegates, so please post some updates over LinkedIn or in the comments section below to let us know what your experience was!
For the rest of us stuck at home, the next best thing is to look out for the extensive coverage coming out of GPS 2022, such as this piece from IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy covering Tim Cook’s highly anticipated keynote address on why privacy protection is the “most essential battle of our time.” I would also highly recommend that you watch the entire speech over this livestream, which includes an excellent introduction from IAPP CEO J. Trevor Hughes.
Another key highlight from GPS22 pertains to updates on the current status of the recently announced Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework, which builds upon and replaces the Safe Harbor and Privacy Shield mechanisms that had been invalidated due to legal challenges. These are usefully summarized in this article from IAPP Staff Writer Joe Duball.
Finally, while not directly related to GPS22, I also wanted to point you to an invaluable resource that the IAPP just put out if you are interested in privacy issues affecting children. The new book, titled "Children’s Privacy and Safety," is available in both print and digital formats. You can learn more from this interview with LinkedIn Chief Privacy Officer Kalinda Raina, executive editor of the book, in this Privacy Advisor Podcast episode.
This is likely to be one of the many topics that will be covered in the Asia Privacy Forum slated to take place 18 to 19 July. The agenda is shaping up to be really exciting and we certainly cannot wait to see all of you there!
In the meantime, stay safe and stay curious.
