The definitive guide for ensuring data privacy and GDPR compliance Privacy regulation is increasingly rigorous around the world and has become a serious concern for senior management of companies regardless of industry, size, scope, and geographic area. The Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) imposes complex, elaborate, and stringent requirements for any organization or individuals conducting business in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA)--while also addressing the export of personal data outside of the EU and EEA. This recently-enacted law allows the imposition of fines of up to 5% of global revenue for privacy and data protection violations.
Dr. Fred Cate’s talk revolves around the current approach to data privacy. He analyzes the role that consent plays in data protection and privacy today, grappling with how we manage consent in a world in which data is constantly being inferred about us. In a chaotic world, he emphasizes that it is important that we ask for consent in a meaningful and effective manner. Fred H. Cate is Vice President for Research, Distinguished Professor, and C. Ben Dutton Professor of Law at Indiana University. He specializes in information security and privacy law and has testified before numerous congressional committees and served on many advisory groups for companies and governmental and international organizations.
Data privacy refers to the protection of personally identifiable information. The term is typically used in connection with information collected, used, and disseminated by businesses, the government, and other organizations. A reasonable expectation of privacy exists in that the information is shared with an organization for one purpose; that expectation is met as long as the information is not collected, used, or disseminated—intentionally or otherwise—for any other purpose.
