Agenda Themes at PrivSec Global:

Digital Transformation

The global pandemic has had a huge impact on every facet of our lives, but one area of business dramatically accelerated was Digital Transformation - whether it be the new normal of working or 5G implementation, this faster processing of DT was going to face regulatory requirements and challenges and demand more from their data protection and cybersecurity teams. PrivSec Global will explore topics including the importance of back-up, and whether more regulation will damage the new pace of change.

Regulatory Developments

All of the sectors within PrivSec Global, whether it be Data Protection, Privacy or Security, are deeply affected by regulations and their developments over time. PrivSec Global is a livestream experience providing a platform for thought-leaders, vendors and our delegate audience to converse on regulations in Europe, the Americas, The Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific - from LGDP in Brazil to the upcoming enforcement of POPIA in South Africa.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

GRC World Forums and PrivSec Global are proud to be producing more and more content on DEI, but this is not something that is going to be solved overnight by a panel, a spreadsheet and an email. But, we must keep talking as it will only be through conversation and debate that we will find the solutions to take society forward. We stand together, within a community of like-minded professionals who care about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in all that we do - our panels will deep-dive into why diversity matters, underlying racial biases in society and AI/ML, data ethics, and data collection and usage within the workplace.

Third Party Risk Management

Risk is at the heart of everything that companies do, and Covid-19 has put an increased spotlight on Third Party Risk Management. Whether it’s interaction with regulations such as GDPR, the increased requirement for more cybersecurity expertise at board level, or regulatory developments impact upon vendor risk management, PrivSec Global will highlight the challenges through case studies and endeavour to explore options and solutions.

Politics, Economics & Social

PrivSec Global will always endeavour to be at the forefront of the political, economic and social issues of the day, relating to Data Protection, Privacy & Security. Whether it be Vaccine Passes, Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance, Facial Recognition or the constant challenges surrounding Russian Cybersecurity initiatives, our agenda and thought-leaders will disclose their thoughts and predictions during lively debates on these vitally important topics.

Trust

Slowly, but very surely, becoming one of the more important words in the Data Protection, Privacy and Security sectors. No longer whispered in undertones, enterprise organisations realise that a roadmap that includes trust and transparency builds a stronger relationship with their clients and consumers, which results in more success, more notoriety and more ROI. PrivSec Global will touch upon some of the most important subjects such as Data Transparency, Effective Zero Trust, Privacy Policies, Online Privacy for Children and Biometric Privacy in the Advertising Industry.

The privacy regulators have a message for brands – unless you can prove otherwise, you must assume that children – people under the age of 18 years old – are using your digital products and services. When it comes to lawfully processing the personal data of children regulators are reminding brandsthat there has always been a high bar for compliance. They want to see brands utilising new skills and capabilities - insight and design - to create an “age appropriate” privacy experience transformed by visibly different approaches to child friendly privacy communications and settings. This panel explores how to put insight and design front and centre to make sure you are creating the best age appropriate experience you can.

11:00 am > Will the EU AI Regulation protect fundamental rights?

The European Commission says it designed its proposed AI Regulation to protect Europeans from AI-driven harms. The proposals set out a series of banned or regulated AI systems and attempt to eliminate bias from AI training data. But would the regulation go far enough to protect people's fundamental rights? Is the Commission right to take a "product safety" approach to AI systems? Would the law justify certain applications of biometric surveillance, "emotion recognition" and psychological manipulation? Without proper implementation, AI can exacerbate human biases, intrude on people's privacy, and drive social inequality. Does the EU's proposed AI Regulation address these problems—or could it make them worse?

16:00 pm > KEYNOTE #3: Max Schrems

Austrian privacy campaigner Max Schrems is best known as the man who held Facebook to account for its treatment of EU users' personal data—and brought down two transatlantic privacy frameworks in the process. Last summer's "Schrems II" case caused major disruption to EU-U.S. data transfers and shone a light on intrusive U.S. surveillance laws. But for Schrems and fellow campaigners at nonprofit group NOYB (None of Your Business), the matter is far from settled. NOYB now has scores of EU companies in its sights for allegedly violating the Schrems II ruling. The group also has ongoing complaints against Apple and Google, which it claims are illegally "tracking" millions of Europeans' mobile phones. And the long-standing dispute between Schrems and the Irish Data Protection Commission shows little sign of relenting. Join us as we ask Max Schrems for his views on his work, the state of EU data protection, and whether the EU-U.S. data flows issue can ever be resolved.

16:00 pm > Politics, Economics, Social: Russia’s State-Led Cyber Espionage and Influence Operations

Whether it be the SolarWinds attack, the 2016 US election interference, or a number of other cyber operations over the past few years, there’s a growing perception/reality that Russia is increasingly flexing its cyber muscles internationally, using the lessons its learned through years of focused cyber-attacks and influence operations in Ukraine and other regional adversaries. While those familiar with Russian operations and thinking will tell you that Russia’s goals include sowing doubt in Democracy, sabotaging transatlantic cooperation between the US and its partners, and bolstering a perception that Russia remains a super power, the question is what does this all mean to companies, Western governments and even the average citizen? What are the risks that a company/companies might be caught in the middle and be Russia’s next target(s). What’s the risk of escalation, such as a cyber incident crossing over into a real-world military or nuclear standoff? And how do we realistically stop these cyber influence operations? This panel will discuss Russia's recent operations, what their strategy is, presentable challenges and solutions, potential escalation concerns, and what the rest of the 2020's could herald?
