Greetings from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA!
It’s hard to believe we’re already in October, but that means we’re just weeks away from our IAPP ANZ Summit 2019 in Sydney, Australia. This year’s event will take place 29–30 Oct., and we’re really excited about the programming. Notably, keynotes will include Australian Information and Privacy Commissioner Angelene Falk and New Zealand Privacy Commissioner John Edwards. Falk will provide a debrief on the privacy landscape in Australia, as well as clarity on the OAIC’s policies, any regulatory updates and what she might see as some possible challenges ahead.
Edwards has made headlines this year calling for more accountability from social media platforms. This will be a great chance to hear his thoughts on the benefits and concerns about the digital ecosystem and the rise of modern technology.
The ANZ Summit will also feature tons of sessions designed to help you do your jobs better and assess how privacy and data protection regulations are affecting the way business is being done internationally and at home in Australian and New Zealand. Programming will feature sessions with tips for building global privacy programs, how to demonstrate to your organization that privacy impact assessments are a benefit not an obstacle, using privacy by design and assessing artificial intelligence, as well as sessions on health care, privacy engineering, the EU General Data Protection Regulation and information security.
The ANZ Summit is also a fantastic time and place to connect with your peers. Those luncheons, dinners, coffee breaks and hallway discussions are sometimes the most valuable part of attending such a conference.
Again, we’re only weeks away from what will surely be a fantastic event. Registration is still open, but seats are going fast. We hope to see you there!
