Global Privacy Summit 2019 Recap

The IAPP‘s Global Privacy Summit has been a “who’s who of privacy” for quite some time. This year was no exception. Over 3,600 people attended this year’s conference to learn and network with the nation’s best and brightest privacy professionals. To make matters even more exciting, IAPP reached 50,000 members worldwide.

What was discussed? Where does the future of privacy lie?

Our experts have boiled down all major discussions into some key takeaways.

All Eyes on the FTC

Privacy professionals are following what the FTC is doing – and anticipating next actions – regarding the regulation and enforcement of privacy practices

Hope from NIST

The draft Privacy Framework is here (by NIST) and the privacy community is placing a lot of hope on its application to manage privacy risk, similarly to the utilization of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF)

PE Full Steam Ahead

Privacy Engineering continues to gain momentum as an important aspect of privacy practice in organizations, and the Summit held a valuable Focus Session to demonstrate how to invoke privacy controls in both the policy and technology stacks

New Regulations Await

Privacy regulations: the last few years were dominated by GDPR, everyone is tracking CCPA, and now privacy professionals are forecasting outcomes and impacts of the next series of state privacy regulations
