Moving Privacy Practices from Policy to Code Watering Hole Hangout

Moving Privacy Practices from Policy to Code:  Is it Really Happening?
with Robin Wilton and Dawn Jutla

Missed the hangout?  Watch the conversation now...


We have no shortage of lists of privacy GOALS -- from the 1974 US Privacy AcT and the FIPP, to the thick flock of "privacy policies" on commercial websites, to more recent European data protection legislation, and the special rules for regulated industries like e-health.   But are we meeting those goals?  More to the point, do we have technology that actually makes it possible?   Join us as we explore current technical projects that actually measure, implement and protect private and personal data as it travels through a very open Internet.  Attend this live video conversation where privacy experts share their perspectives.

We'll explore:

  • Real methods of assessment and design -- PMRM and PbD
  • The encrypt-the-whole-web plans, at various levels, and what that really might protect, or not
  • Evolution in the expectations of citizens and governments -- recent white house announcements, etc.
