    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    8:30 am - 9:15 am
    Privacy laws and regulations continue to evolve rapidly in the U.S. at the federal and state levels. Combined with the European Union GDPR, these emerging standards underline the need for businesses to manage data as a regulated asset. The risks are heightened when developing or implementing emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain and biometric technologies. A key part of governance, both to reduce risk and to enable new innovations, is to perform impact assessments when implementing new technologies into the business, and as part of any new product development or innovation operations. This presentation will focus on privacy regulatory issues associated with emerging technologies, trends in structuring impact assessments, approaches to and objectives of PIAs, and ways in which to integrate PIA processes into the business.
