Privacy embodies ancient yet important principles that are used to manage life affairs in today’s digital world. Privacy is even more important in today's digital world primarily due to the scale and speed at which information can spread. Laws and regulations are evolving to define what information is personal, but not private, and who can access it. For example, personal information can be any factual or subjective data about individuals, such as age, name, ID number, income, ethnicity, blood type, but which does not identify those individuals. Do enterprises record personal information, which are often shared with other organization or service providers, without compromising your privacy? In this session, speaker (Dr. Baljeet Malhotra, Teejlab) will review a hands-on/practical framework for conducting Privacy Impact Analysis for enterprises.
