Consent and Preference Management Across the Globe

Accountable Executives = Accountable Privacy Programs

Thursday, June 23
12:00 PM – 12:50 PM EST

Regulators from California, France, Australia, and points in between are increasingly requiring organizations to prove their comprehensive privacy programs are operationally effective and aligned with executive governance and accountability. This means corporate controls binding on even the most senior executives, investment across the organization, and real-time performance data.

Scott Taylor, VP Chief Privacy Officer at Merck, and Marty Abrams, Executive Director at the IAF have been exploring for two decades how to implement mature, comprehensive accountability programs. This session will show how it is done.

Differential Privacy: Lessons for Enterprises from US Government Agencies

Thursday, June 23
3:00 PM – 3:50 PM EST

Enterprises trying to keep up with technological advances and a rapidly changing regulatory landscape can learn from their public sector counterparts who have been finding innovative ways to publish data while respecting the privacy of individuals.

This talk will review recent uses of differential privacy in the public sector, based on actual case-studies at the US Census Bureau and the Internal Revenue Service. We will emphasize the tools and processes that enable “negotiations” between the parties most concerned with privacy and those most concerned with accuracy, or “fitness for use”, of the released data. We will explain the benefits that drove the adoption of differential privacy and how they can be translated to commercial enterprises.
