Is Information Governance an antidote to information chaos and the loss of personal privacy and data security?
14 August 2018 – 05:30pm – 08:00pm
Co-hosted event with Information Governance – ANZ
If privacy and technology are “inherently incompatible” we are not exercising the appropriate Information Governance.
It was posited during the last event at the 2018 Privacy Awareness Week that ‘Privacy and technology are inherently incompatible’. However, an alternative view could be that corporate self-interest, information mismanagement and the continuing abnegation of individual responsibility for what services we use could be a cause for this deterioration of our privacy.
Appropriate information governance, assisted by privacy and security enhancing technologies, and ‘encouraged’ by robust legislation can improve our privacy in this increasingly interconnected world. This talk will step through the principles of information governance, explain how these are some of the fundamental pillars of data security and look at some of the technologies that can be used by organisations to enhance the privacy of the data that they handle.
The talk will highlight some of the privacy enhancing technology choices we have as individuals. Solutions exist that provide stronger protections for how we communicate and share information – what are some of these options and what are the inevitable trade-offs in their use?
GDPR has thrust data privacy into the agenda for many organisations but that may not be the only regulatory environment that some organisations must comply with. We will finish with a look at how the different main regulatory environments require organisations to protect the privacy of the data that they handle. We’ll do a simple compare and contrast, from a layman’s perspective, of how these regulatory drivers may shape the information governance activities of an organisation from a data privacy perspective.
