Explaining AI: How To Implement “Explainability” in Emerging Global AI/ML Regulations

This panel will focus on the emerging principle of “explainability” in regulations that deal with AI and automated decision making technologies. Panelists will discuss how to implement “explainability” in practice, as it is a common transparency requirement under both AI self-regulatory frameworks and prescriptive proposals like the EU AI Act, and a particularly challenging task for many privacy and compliance personnel. This panel will, for privacy professionals in the space, explore best practices for determining content to be included in AI disclosures, where such AI-specific disclosures should be made, and strategies for how to describe complex technologies in accordance with transparency and intelligibility requirements.

Day 2 Agenda

What Behavioral Economics Can Teach Privacy Officers

Any CPO knows that the hardest part about privacy isn’t the law – it’s the people. Developers, marketers and even executives ignore privacy considerations until an emergency strikes: a deal is lost, a fine is levied or a PR crisis emerges. For decades, the field of behavioral economics has studied why people ignore risk — and what organizations can do to get people to take the small steps necessary to avoid threats in the future.

We talk with Michael Hallsworth, PhD, Managing Director (Americas) for BIT, one of the leading applied behavioral insights firms, about using behavioral economics to influence culture and change behavior (and yes, even create better assessments along the way.)

Redefining the Marketer’s Relationship with Data in the Privacy Age

Marketers have spent the past two decades building digital marketing engines fueled by broad and relatively unrestricted collection and processing of personal data. However, privacy regulation, motivated by broader consumer concerns, has forced marketing organizations to rethink their relationship with data and re-approach the way they measure, track and target consumers.

We talk about the broader cultural shift in marketing and what leading marketers are doing today to rebuild their data-driven marketing organizations in the age of privacy.

Scaling Data Rights

Laws like CCPA create a new class of data rights, but they’re hard for consumers to use. In summer 2021, the Digital Lab at Consumer Reports began work on a “Data Rights Protocol” (DRP) that seeks to standardize the technical interchange of data rights requests.

Data Rights Protocol (DRP) is a draft specification that encodes a set of standardized request/response data flows for exercising Personal Data Rights provided under laws like the California Consumer Privacy Act. This protocol allows for the exchange of data rights requests between consumers, authorized agents, privacy compliance tech companies, and covered businesses and makes the evocation of these rights more consistent and efficient.

Privacy Assurance: Establishing a Second Line of Defense to Sustain Compliance

Session sponsored by:

With the increase in privacy regulations worldwide, organizations are looking to formalize privacy as a function. Privacy compliance cannot be sustained as simply a paper exercise; it requires multi-stakeholder support through both informed guidance and business-led execution. Designing a privacy assurance program will allow organizations to create a second line of defense for privacy, with the business operating against controls put into place to sustain compliance.

Our experience in the privacy industry has taught us that building a proactive privacy assurance program is a strategic and achievable approach to sustaining privacy compliance.

Knowledge Creation and Data Protection: How an Enterprise Data Strategy Enables Both

The process of “knowledge creation” has been called “thinking with data,” and the process of “knowledge application” has been called “acting with data.” Understanding the difference between knowledge creation and knowledge discovery and the purposes for which they are being undertaken is critical to understanding how they should be governed as part of an enterprise data strategy. Learn about how ensuring the responsible and ethical development of new data-driven products and services is part of that strategy, along with the evolving global regulatory environment causes friction.
