  • Understanding Facial Recognition Technology and Consumer Privacy Implications
    Understanding Facial Recognition Technology and Consumer Privacy Implications
    Brenda Leong, Senior Counsel & Director of Strategy, FPF & Gabriela Zanfir-Fortuna, Senior Counsel, FPF Recorded: May 23 2019 50 mins
    A discussion of how various facial detection and recognition systems operate, the privacy risks associated with different levels of identification, and the impact under GDPR. Facial recognition technology can help users organize and label photos, improve online services for visually impaired users, and help stores and stadiums better serve customers. At the same time, the technology often involves the collection and use of sensitive biometric data, requiring careful assessment of the data protection issues raised. Understanding the technology and building trust are necessary to maximize the benefits and minimize the risks.

    Equally relevant is the need to expand stakeholders’ awareness and understanding of the many types of facial scanning systems, as well as the impact of accuracy differences among the many systems available today.

    It is important to understand the distinctions between facial detection systems (which, when properly designed neither create nor implicate any Personally Identifiable Information) with full-scale facial identification programs (matching a person’s image to a database in order to identify the individual to a store clerk or stadium employee who otherwise wouldn’t recognize them).

    The consumer-facing applications of facial recognition technology continue to evolve, and the technology will certainly be used in new ways in the future, and the legislative environment under GDPR must consider how such uses should be implemented to protect consumer privacy rights.

  • GDPR - A new global standard?
    GDPR - A new global standard?
    Guy Cohen, Strategy & Policy Lead, Privitar Recorded: May 22 2019 44 mins
    This year has seen an eruption of new data protection bills and laws, as many countries follow Europe's lead in enacting their first, or stronger, data protection laws. For many global organisations a fracturing of data protection law poses a costly compliance burden and many would like to enforce one standard across their operations. But to what extent are these countries responses similar? Is there a new global standard, and if so is it the GDPR? To what extent do these changes overlap, and what trends not seen in the GDPR are emerging too?

    This talk will explore how the world of data protection has changed since the GDPR was passed last year. In particular it will look at how the US policy landscape is changing and the extent to which GDPR concepts are coming through. The US is undergoing enormous change, with the CCPA coming into effect next year, various proposed federal bills, amendments to sector bills, and 16 state level bills all being debated. The talk will highlight some similarities between these various bills and amendments, as well as some of the areas of divergence. It will also draw on other changes, such as the emergence of data localisation laws in China, Indonesia, and India, and some of the laws closer to the GDPR such as Brazil.
  • Privacy and security: A symbiotic relationship
    Privacy and security: A symbiotic relationship
    Lee Bonham, Senior Privacy Engineer, Privitar Recorded: May 22 2019 33 mins
    The world is waking up to the fact that you need both strong security systems in place and privacy technology to ensure comprehensive data protection.

    To achieve this goal, CTOs, DPOs and CISOs have to work in unison. There is no privacy without security. But security alone is not enough to protect your customer’s sensitive data. Strong privacy protection helps to unlock data for new purposes and makes the job of the security team a lot easier.

    Find out how the two work hand in hand with Privitar’s Senior Privacy Engineer Lee Bonham.

    Join this session to learn:

    - How robust security controls are not enough to protect your data fully

    - How the focus is shifting from the perimeter to implementing privacy controls on the data itself

    - How privacy technologies and access controls work hand-in-hand to ensure your data is protected

  • GDPR Starts With Your Data, Not With Lawyers
    GDPR Starts With Your Data, Not With Lawyers
    David Froud, Founder & Director, Core Concept Security Ltd. Recorded: May 20 2019 43 mins
    In the panic leading up to May 25th 2018, many organisations did one of three things:

    1. Hired a lawyer first;
    2. Hired a data security expert first, or
    3. Absolutely nothing.

    All of these approaches are wrong, and regardless of the size/type of your organisation, the first steps were exactly the same; Go find your data.

    In this presentation we will simplify the process of achieving GDPR compliance so that anyone can get started.
  • Update your email defenses to meet the new threatscape
    Update your email defenses to meet the new threatscape
    Lysa Myers & Cameron Camp, Security Researchers Recorded: May 9 2019 53 mins
    Unless your organization handled classified information, it was once generally considered “good enough" to protect email with little more than a basic password. When spam floods hit, we all collectively understood that we needed to do a bit more in order to protect the sanity of email traffic (not to mention the sanity of our users). Fast-forward to the current threatscape, where protecting business email is mission critical, but the tools and techniques are tricky to understand, deploy and support with adequate staff training. There is a lot more we can and should be doing, but it can be challenging to navigate the security maze.

    In this webinar we’ll discuss a variety of techniques and technologies you can use to improve your email security to meet new threats:

    - Filtering unwanted/malicious email traffic
    - Why you need encryption on both the message- and network-level
    - Using more robust authentication options than just a password
    - How you can use authorization to decrease spoofed messages
    - Decreasing the risk of damage from software vulnerabilities
    - Creating a culture of security to help identify and thwart phishing

    Many of these strategies can be useful for protecting your own personal email account or traffic. But as an administrator of a company email infrastructure, there are quite a few other things you can do to meaningfully increase security, which don’t require you to shell out big bucks on fancy new products.
