DescriptionIncreasingly, each country, and even each state, is providing unique legal solutions to data privacy and security. For businesses that cross borders, both national and domestic, this creates distinct challenges to building effective solutions. These evolving privacy, security and technology requirements are impacting the growth and innovation within companies, requiring strategic decisions regarding risk, legal liability, and strategic planning.

Often, the concepts of security and privacy by design and by default are built into these legal requirements. But, understanding the requirements of the law, and translating those requirements into technological solutions can be challenging. This workshop will provide in-depth understanding of those legal requirements, and provide a framework to help the industry incorproate these core concepts of design within technology.

The Workshop will start with an overview of general privacy and security legal and policy principles, and then will focus on two key laws that are pushing the privacy and security laws: the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 ("CCPA"). Using these laws, we will discuss case studies, and how to communicate, plan, and strategize on products and solutions that incorporate privacy and security requirements.

The Workshp will include both lecture and hands-on exercises. The goal is for attendees to take away tools and strategies to bring this conversation to their teams and departments.
