    Registration Level:
    • session level iconSecureWorld Plus
    9:00 am - 3:00 pm

    This SecureWorld PLUS course will focus on key privacy laws and concepts, and how to implement privacy into your organization. The main components that the course will cover include:

    1. Overview of US and Global Privacy Laws
    2. Building an Effective and Practical Privacy and Security compliance program
    3. Creating a process to respond to data subject rights
    4. Addressing key privacy concepts: data minimization, privacy by design, data protection impact assessments, responding to privacy breaches.

    Increasingly, each country, and even each state, is providing unique legal solutions to data privacy and information security. For businesses that cross borders, both national and domestic, this creates distinct challenges to building effective solutions that address legal requirements while also allowing a business to innovate and evolve. These changing privacy, security and technology requirements are impacting the growth and innovation within companies, requiring strategic decisions regarding risk, legal liability, and strategic planning.

    Often, understanding the requirements of the law, and translating those requirements into technological solutions can be challenging. However, companies that are operationalizing privacy and information security within their organizations are able to address these evolving legal requirements while balancing growth and new opportunities. This workshop will provide in-depth understanding of those legal requirements, and provide a framework to help the industry incorporate privacy and security within their operations so that the law can work hand-in-hand with the business, and not become a barrier for the businesses growth and evolution.

    The course 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.

    Session 1 of the course will start with an overview of general privacy and security legal and policy principles, and then will focus on the key laws and regulatory decisions that are pushing the privacy and security legal landscape, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) rules and regulations, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”), and the various U.S. state privacy laws. 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.

    1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

    If we’ve learned one thing from the pandemic it’s that cybercriminals do not take breaks. They are constantly retooling and trying new approaches. They collaborate—often better than we do. It is time for us to join forces, identify the most likely of risks to our organizations, and strengthen our networks. We’ve got to get our developers on board, as well, as it’s got to be secure before it goes to market. And what about all the careless clicking from employees?

    It’s a huge task, but we don’t have to do it alone. Join our panel of experts as they unpack the current threat landscape and offer ideas on how to start making effective changes within your organization.
