Privacy Insight Series Webinar – Managing Consent and Legitimate Interests Under the GDPR @ Online
Jun 27 @ 9:00 am
Privacy Insight Series Webinar - Managing Consent and Legitimate Interests Under the GDPR @ Online
Consent management remains a hot topic and has generated a lot of questions and uncertainty.

The GDPR has raised the bar with new requirements on companies to justify their use of EU personal data. And while relying on consent is not the only legal option available, it’s successfully put GDPR at the top of every inbox as consumers have been submerged in emails from companies urging them to “stay in touch” or “not miss out”. Are these emails really necessary? What do I need to include in my privacy notice or consent form? What kind of records do I need if a regulator asks?

With a divergence of opinion, consent management remains a hot topic and has generated a lot of questions and uncertainty.

Register now for this webinar where we will review:
  • The GDPR requirements on determining the legal basis for processing
  • The most recent guidance from regulators on seeking consent
  • Sample consent forms, legitimate interests assessments and other best practice examples

Can’t make it? Register anyway – we’ll automatically send you an email with both the slides and recording after the webinar!

Call for Participation: Privacy in Context: Critically Engaging with Theory to Guide Privacy Research and Design
Aug 31 @ 11:59 pm
Call for Participation: Privacy in Context: Critically Engaging with Theory to Guide Privacy Research and Design

This site contains information related to the 2018 workshop on networked privacy. This year’s workshop, being held at CSCW in Jersey City on November 3rd, is titled, “Privacy in Context: Critically Engaging with Theory to Guide Privacy Research and Design.”

Privacy has been a key research theme in the CSCW and HCI communities, but the term is often used in an ad hoc and fragmented way. This is likely due to the fact that privacy is a complex and multi-faceted concept. This one-day workshop will facilitate discourse around key privacy theories and frameworks that can inform privacy research with the goal of producing guidelines for privacy researchers on how and when to incorporate which theories into various aspects of their empirical privacy research. This will lay the groundwork to move the privacy field forward. To inspire participants and spark discussion, we will have a special keynote speaker, Dr. Helen Nissenbaum, engage with the audience about her renowned Contextual Integrity framework. Dr. Nissenbaum is a Professor of Information Science at Cornell Tech and her framework focuses on understanding privacy expectations and their implications.

Webinar Summary:

  • In celebration of Data Privacy Day, “an international effort to empower individuals and businesses to respect privacy, safeguard data and enable trust,” please join us in a webinar where we will discuss the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), a landmark piece of legislation designed to increase consumer rights over personal information, establish that privacy is a human right, and set the minimum bar for national privacy regulations.
  • This will be the first in a series of webinars to help educate consumers and businesses about the CCPA, how to get ready for it, and to understand that the CCPA will ultimately protect a fundamental human right, while still enabling and promoting innovation and the growth of small and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises.
  • The CCPA is set to go into effect on January 1, 2020 and will help people regain ownership and control over their personal information while helping businesses establish trust by ensuring they safeguard people’s personal information.
  • Alastair Mactaggart, the Californians for Consumer Privacy Chairman and a force behind the CCPA, along with Justin Antonipillai, the founder and CEO of WireWheel, and John Ackerly, the founder and CEO of Virtru, will discuss the key sections of the CCPA and how technologies, like those developed by WireWheel and Virtru, are making it possible for the CCPA to fully achieve its vision and goals.
