Meeting Privacy Challenges At The Speed of Technology and Business.
12:15pm - 1:00pm
Room: Keynote Theater
New privacy challenges and risks are created as new technologies, along with corresponding new business practices, emerge. Laws and regulations always lag behind being passed to address such risks and concerns, so business leaders must look beyond existing laws and regulations and know how to protect the existing and new kinds of personal information in the absence of such legal directives.
We are currently experiencing more new types of privacy risks than ever before in our history as a result of a wide range of new systems, networks and applications. It is important for business leaders to understand what these new risks are and the related challenges in order to effectively prevent privacy breaches. Rebecca will describe these challenges, real life examples, and provide advice for what organizations can do to meet these emerging privacy risks.
