Nothing to Hide: An Introduction to Data Privacy and Why it Matters

In the technological age, data breaches are norm. Nevertheless, the ease of access provided by the internet of things and sale of personally identifiable information have steadily increased with individuals debating whether or not they “have something to hide.” Please join the colloquia on Friday, September 13, 2019 to join Hawah Ahmad, JD, CIPP/E as she discusses the quick and dirty of information privacy, and how balancing data subjects’ rights and the interests of business is best accomplished through privacy by design and information privacy compliance.

This talk will briefly introduce the roots and importance of data privacy, the Fair Information Principles/Practices, sectoral privacy in the United States of America (HIPAA, HI-TECH, GLBA), State Privacy Legislation (Nevada Revised Statute 603A and the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018) and the hopes for a comprehensive federal privacy framework, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Please stay to learn how the implementation of privacy by design at the early stages of product development can pay off in the long run, how to review and comply with the changing framework of data privacy, and how to take advantage of the growing job market of data privacy (including how to network within privacy, what certifications/continuing education and resources can help advance your position in the field).
