Panel Discussion

Who should attend?
This session is for chief technologists, R&D, product managers, developers, and designers who want to better understand the principles of Privacy by Design.

California has two new laws that go into effect January 1: the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and SB 327, an IOT security law which mandates that manufacturers that sell or offer to sell a connected device in California equip the device with “reasonable security features.”

This makes California the first state to specifically regulate the security of connective devices, which are commonly referred to as Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the CCPA is one of most comprehensive state privacy laws to go into effect since the EU enacted General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2018.

In contrast to California data privacy laws protecting only personal information, the new security law aims to protect the security of both IoT devices, and any information contained on IoT devices.

Given this focus on legislating privacy and security we should be thinking ahead and addressing these principles during the design process. While SB 327 focuses on IoT specifically (this includes connected things such as connected cars, industrial devices, retail point-of-sale or medical devices, to name a few), privacy can impact other products and apps as well, including social apps, media, and telecommunications.  Across the board, these two new acts have an impact on a wide number of products and services.

Examples where Privacy by Design was needed

When we look at the Facebook data privacy scandal around the collection and sharing of personally identifiable information on as many as 87 million people or read in recent news about hackers who have been able to spy on children via popular “smart home” security apps, we realize that even honestly designed products can end up with unintended consequences.  As our world becomes more mobile and more connected, how can developers build privacy and security into their products to keep their customers safe and secure?

Panel Focus

This panel will consist of technical, product, and design professionals who will focus on how we can apply design principles that will make our new products safe and secure.

What is Privacy by Design?

The term “Privacy by Design” means “data protection through technology design.” “Privacy by Design” along with “Privacy by Default” are one of the key changes that were brought into the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that went into effect in Europe in May 2018.

“Privacy by Design” and “Privacy by Default” have been frequently discussed topics related to data protection. The first thoughts of “Privacy by Design” were expressed in the 1970s and were incorporated in the 1990s into the RL 95/46/EC data protection directive. According to recital 46 in this Directive, Technical and Organizational Measures (TOM) must be taken already at the time of planning a processing system to protect data safety.

Startups and New Product Introductions: MVP vs. Privacy / Security

As entrepreneurs we tend to think in terms of Minimally Viable Product or MVP when we first launch a product or app, and typically instantiating privacy or security at that point is thought to take up too much time or investment and risk “holding us back” in a competitive space. Yet that leaves a window of vulnerability. When should we consider designing in privacy and security? Is there “right” timing?

For that answer and more, join us Wednesday, January 15.
