For those of us watching and working with companies in the video game industry, there are serious challenges arising for those trying to make sure they comply with GDPR, CCPA, and other privacy laws. And the same compliance challenges arise repeatedly.
Video game and entertainment companies are getting a lot of DSAR requests. Kids play a lot of video games, and because parents can initiate DSARs on behalf of their kids, gaming companies are getting significant numbers of those requests.
The privacy analysis involving gaming data could be complex. Data is intertwined, involving multiple players, their interactions and their communications. If one player asks for their data, gaming companies need to ensure that they are not sharing one person’s’ data with another.
The volume of data at issue could be very high. Video games involve not only provided information about the players but logged and observed data about what the players did, together with communication between players. There can be an enormous amount of personal information for these game platforms.

As connected games and mobile experiences collect increasing amounts of user data and personally identifiable information, the more liable game developers and publishers become in terms of safe-guarding that information. Compliance with US and international government privacy requirements also becomes a crucial matter for the continued survival of the game industry. This session looks at where data comes from, at defense, at legal countermeasures, and at response to data breaches, cross-border privacy, and children-specific privacy regulations and best practices.
