Roundtable Discussion with Dr. Johnny Ryan @ Future of Privacy Forum
Jun 7 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Roundtable Discussion with Dr. Johnny Ryan @ Future of Privacy Forum | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) invites you to join us on Friday, June 7th, 2019 for a roundtable discussion with Dr. Johnny Ryan, Chief Policy & Industry Relations Officer for Brave Software, to discuss The Future of Ad Tech – Emerging Business Models and Designing for Privacy.

Prior to joining Brave Software, Dr. Ryan was Head of Ecosystem for PageFair, and Chief Innovation Officer of The Irish Times. In recent years, he has been a prominent privacy advocate in the EU, working with digital rights organizations to file formal complaints with regulators in the UK, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, related to advocates’ concerns about the Ad Tech industry and current real-time bidding (RTB) practices (read the primary regulatory complaint here). More recently, Dr. Ryan testified before the U.S. Senate Judicary Committee in a May 21st hearing, “Understanding the Digital Advertising Ecosystem and the Impact of Data Privacy and Competition Policy.” (Watch the hearing)

The discussion will be moderated by Stacey Gray, Senior Counsel at the Future of Privacy Forum.

We will discuss with the group:

  • What does the future hold for alternative Ad Tech business models, including blockchain and attention-based models such as the Brave Attention Token (BAT)?
  • What does engineering for privacy, or “privacy by design,” mean in the context of advertising technology?
  • What’s on the horizon for Ad Tech in Europe?
  • & any other questions you have — please feel free to send your questions ahead of time.

Lunch will be provided.

** Invitation only — Limit 1 per organization & non-transferable. **

2nd Annual Symposium on Applications of Contextual Integrity @ UC Berkeley David Brower Center
Aug 19 @ 1:00 pm – Aug 20 @ 6:00 pm

The aim of the symposium is to foster interaction among diverse communities of research and practice using contextual integrity to reason about privacy, and to design and evaluate, craft regulation, and generate formal logics for privacy.

However, with authors’ permission, we will post accepted submissions on the website.

The Near Future of U.S. Privacy Law @ University of Colorado Law School, Wittemyer Courtroom
Sep 6 @ 9:00 am – 1:30 pm

The year 2019 may be a turning point for data privacy law. Privacy law in the United States is famously a hole-ridden patchwork of state laws, sectoral legislation, and consumer protection. Whether in response to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation or to California’s enactment of its Consumer Privacy Act, over this past year state and federal legislators have been proposing new data privacy laws at an energetic rate.

How will we govern the technology of the near future? Will the United States join the rest of the world in recognizing data privacy rights or will it take its own approach? Will these choices even matter in practice, given the long reach of both EU and California law?

This conference will bring together academics, practitioners, technologists, and regulators to discuss the near future of U.S. data privacy law. Specifically, we will explore municipal bans on surveillance technology, new state privacy laws, the future role of the Federal Trade Commission, and proposed federal legislation.

Those who cannot attend the event in person may also register for the free livestream.
