Notice and Consent: Innovating a New Path Forward

frameworks in an era of big data and the Internet of things. Speakers include:

Fireside Chat: What is the research telling us? 
When it comes to privacy and the rapidly changing 
experiences of life online, it can be hard to keep up 
with the current attitudes and actions of people 
online as they try to manage or understand how 
information is being collected about them and how 
it’s used. Privacy researchers will discuss what
questions still remain and how 
people perceive
privacy vs. security?

  • Michael Kaiser, Executive Director, NCSA
  • Mary Madden, Senior Researcher, Pew Research
    Center's Internet and American Life Project
1:15 PM - 2:00 PM 

A Competitive Advantage: Respecting Consumer
in a Big Data World

Forward-looking companies and creative start-ups 
are finding ways to innovate privacy products and 
practices as their competitive advantage. At the 
same time, Big Data also shows great promise for 
innovation and the public good. Where do we strike 
the right balance? Industry leaders will discuss how 
they navigate in a complex eco-system.

About Data Privacy Day

Led by the National Cyber Security Alliance, Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. The Day commemorates the 1981 signing of Convention 108 – the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. Data Privacy Day is a celebration for everyone and an effort to empower people to protect their privacy, control their digital footprint and escalate the protection of data privacy as everyone’s priority. Intel and Microsoft are Leading Sponsors of Data Privacy Day while ADPAT&TESET and Facebook are Contributing Sponsors and Small Business sponsors include AnchorFree, CyberGhostPRIVATE WiFi, and SpiderOak.
