Privacy in the post-COVID era
What's it about?
Celebrate International Privacy Day
On April 26 2006, the Council of Europe established Data Protection Day, observed annually on January 28. The Council of Europe's data protection convention known as "Convention 108" was opened for signature. Data Protection Day is now observed all over the world and is known as Privacy Day outside of Europe.
COVID-19 has accelerated our adoption of digital technology in the workplace to a frenetic pace. But at the same time, efforts to establish a global regulatory framework to govern how those technologies are used remains a work in progress. For you, as an insights and analytics professional, this creates a whole array of opportunities but also specific challenges you need to prepare for.
What's in it for me?
Join a global discussion looking at understanding overcoming privacy issues in the post-covid era. We'll speak with privacy experts from around the world on the role of data protection and privacy and the emerging challenges and opportunities on every continent.
This must-attend event will give you a real-world tour to inform your data management and compliance programmes. Attend to learn about:
The major challenges data experts think are facing insights and analytics professionals
The regulatory trends emerging in every corner of the world from top data experts
The top concerns regulators and legislators are looking to police in the coming year
