Consumers are ambivalent about online privacy. Some surveys suggest outright hostility to mobile-location tracking; others argue users are happy to share personal information for clear rewards and benefits. Consumers also express a desire for greater personalization of online, mobile and shopping experiences. How can these contradictory positions be reconciled?
The privacy landscape is evolving rapidly with Apple making location privacy changes in iOS 8 and state governments getting involved in regulating privacy in the absence of federal action.
Rather than an “issue that will blow over,” privacy has become a central discussion for marketers and brands. It’s the flipside of “big data.” But timidity, passivity and denial won’t work. Stakeholders must proactively tackle the issue head on.
Join Greg Sterling, Senior Analyst with Opus Research, and Future of Privacy Forum founder Jules Polonetsky for an informative, interactive webinar about the latest developments in location and privacy on Wednesday, July 2, 10 am PDT /1 pm EDT.
This session will look at some of the recent changes in the regulatory landscape as well as what we can anticipate in the near future. We will try to discern any trends in these developments and discuss how a global company could respond.

New EU data protection legislation includes some significant changes like defining a data breach to include data destruction, adding the right to be forgotten, adopting the U.S. practice of breach notifications, and many other new elements. Another major change is a shift from a directive to a rule, which means the protections are the same for all 27 countries and includes significant financial penalties for infractions. This webcast will explore the new EU data protection legislation and highlight the elements that could have significant impacts on data handling practices.
Privacy and Data Protection have risen to the top of the Information Governance agenda, yet the processes to ensure compliance and proactive risk management are poorly understood by many organisations. This problem is compounded by the explosion in Web 2.0 and cloud computing: it is becoming increasingly difficult to understand what data is under the control of an organisation, let alone where it is or how it is being used. Organisations that fail to address privacy-related issues risk regulatory punishment and media censure, and a privacy compliance strategy is now as important as any traditional security strategy.
In this session Toby Stevens, Director of privacy think-tank the Enterprise Privacy Group, will share his experiences on how, why and when to conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment; what the complications are for cloud computing and Web 2.0; and what traps await organisations when they first tackle privacy problems.

Governments across the globe are proposing and enacting strong data privacy and data protection regulations by mandating frameworks that include noteworthy changes like defining a data breach to include data destruction, adding the right to be forgotten, mandating the practice of breach notifications, and many other new elements. The implications of this and other proposed legislation on how the cloud can be utilized for storing data are significant. Join this live Webcast to hear:
•EU “directives” vs. “regulation”
•General data protection regulation summary
•How personal data has been redefined
•Substantial financial penalties for non-compliance
•Impact on data protection in the cloud
•How to prepare now for impending changes
We caught up with F-Secure's Mikko Hypponen to get his thoughts on the ever-relevant Privacy vs. Security debate.
Mikko discussed the sensitive equilibrium required to protect data and ensure it's privacy; the influence that the EU's Safe Harbour ruling will have and how security should be the responsibility of all, not just the government.
He also gave his one key piece of advice for keeping your data private and secure.
When you’re the Chief Privacy Officer of a company as large as Unilever and the EU is threatening fines of up to 5% of turnover if you don’t meet the rules of the new General Data Protection Regulation then you need to make it your business to understand the rules inside and out! Needless to say Steve has spent over a year getting to know the implications of the regulation on a company the size of Unilever and will impart his pearls of wisdom in this webinar so that CISO/CIOs and other IT security experts can understand how the regulation will impact on their business when it’s introduced next year and will offer 5 key actions that need to be taken to make sure you are complying with the new privacy laws.
Steve believes that big data (governance), cyber security and privacy are all inextricably linked as they share common objectives and principles, and therefore, require satisfactory safeguards and assurances. From a business perspective, this can be achieved by building ‘data trust and assurance’ programmes based on the fundamental principles of transparency, accountability, protection, integrity, confidentially and availability, accompanied by clear policies and delivered through comprehensive training, integrated procedures and a robust compliance regime.
This is where Steve’s role as Chief Privacy Officer at Unilever is particularly relevant because Unilever’s digital ambition, to connect with one billion consumers around the world, pushes the boundaries of functionality, connectivity and personalisation. Steve’s role is to work collaboratively and integrally with the business, to help steer and shape the digital conversation and leverage the power of data analytics, while also ensuring that the business remains compliant with laws around the world but still competitive, and acts in a moral and ethical way in relation to the rights of the individual.
The Domain Name System (DNS) is involved in nearly every transaction conducted on the Internet. It translates your online requests into a set of navigation instructions to get you to the right location. It is also one of the richest data sources about online activities. Recent enhancements to DNS continue to extend the privacy protections enabled by this fundamental Internet infrastructure service. This session will survey these enhancements and discuss the appropriate role of the DNS in an organization’s overall privacy and security strategy.
What you’ll take away:
· The Domain Name System—the fundamental service that enables applications to connect by name to services, devices and other resources—is both a critical control point for information exchange and a building block for improving privacy and security
· Enhancements to DNS over the past decade, and especially the past year, continue to improve both the privacy and security of the service itself, and its contribution to privacy and security overall
· Because of its key role in an organization’s Internet infrastructure, the DNS should be an important part of an organization’s privacy and security strategy
Businesses today operate across more geographic boundaries than ever before and as data travels globally, a company's compliance, risk, and data governance obligations become exponentially more complex. Data moving across public and private clouds also increases breach risk, and compliance regulators can stop projects in their tracks - sometimes with drastic consequences to the business.
How is information stored and managed in the cloud? A question every company should be asking when dealing with the privacy and security of information stored in the cloud. Join our panel of AvePoint experts, led by Dana Simberkoff, Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, to discuss data sovereignty and privacy in the cloud. With many factors to be taken into consideration, our panel offers tips and advice to help understand the existing or upcoming data protection laws in the EU and ways technology can keep your data safe in the cloud.
Drones are coming! Whether of the flying variety (quadricopters, etc.) or the driving variety (autonomous – i.e., self-driving - cars), they will soon be ubiquitous in the air and on our roads. However, there are a number of critical questions to be considered and resolved before we move into the is Brave New World. For example, are drones a threat to privacy?
Jeff Kalwerisky, CTO of CPE Interactive and Stephen Wu, an attorney with Silicon Valley Law Group, will talk about how drones threaten privacy and more broadly the technological and legal issues arising from the manufacture, sale, and use of drones. Can companies be sued for selling or using drones? What laws bear on the use and sale of drones? This talk will cover technological and legal risk management methods companies can use to mitigate their privacy and liability risks.
