Agenda

In the last few years, concern over how personal information is collected and used in the US has increased. This has prompted a number of US states to propose their own data privacy bills, culminating this year in the entry into force of the CCPA, fuelling calls for a comprehensive federal data privacy law. A uniform framework, it is argued, would enhance trust by granting data subjects clear protections, and at the same time provide regulatory certainty to businesses operating across the USA.

The 2020 edition of the Data Privacy USA conference will gather US and global data privacy experts, industry leaders and civil society, to explore what’s next in the push for a set of federal rules. It will analyse what has been learnt since the last edition of this conference, particularly in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, and how data, used appropriately, is a powerful tool in the efforts to boost economic growth and improve the health and wellbeing of US citizens.

Conference Opening & Fireside Chat

Federal Trade Commissioner Christine Wilson will sit with Dan Caprio, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of the Providence Group for a fireside chat which will set the scene of the 2nd Annual Data Privacy Conference USA.
As concerns over how personal information is collected and used in the US has increased in the last few years – and recently peaked in the age of the Covid-19 pandemic – the conversation will focus on Commissioner Wilson’s views on the need for a federal privacy law and on the privacy principles she feels necessary to be incorporated into any forthcoming privacy legislation. Issues around federal preemption and private rights of action, which are two of the main stumbling blocks for privacy legislation, will be addressed
and the speakers will discuss the potential benefits and challenges of provisions such as data ownership and data portability, as well as explore the implications of principles such as individual consent and data controller accountability. Finally, the discussion will revolve around the role of the FTC as the responsible agency for enforcing a potential new federal privacy law.

People, Industry & Government: What do the next four years hold for Data Privacy in the USA?

In the past year alone, a great deal of progress on the data privacy legislative front has been made: Members of Congress have discussed and introduced an unprecedented number of privacy bills;  The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) entered into force on January 1, 2020, driving several other US States to introduce or expand their privacy laws, as well as adding momentum to attempts at formalizing a sweeping federal law on privacy in the United States.  Yet, several sticking points remain and progress is now at a standstill amid partisan disagreements. The Covid-19 outbreak has somewhat re-re-energized the debate by raising important questions about the scope of data use, how privacy can be better protected while delivering social and economic benefits, and about the role and responsibilities of government, the tech industry and others. The last few months have also seen powerful community movements prompting changes in the tech industry, moving the needle on discussions around data privacy and ad tech, for instance, and often driving at the heart of business models and revenue streams. 

This session will examine the progress made around the developments of regulatory concepts that could inspire a future federal data privacy law, debate the remaining sticking points around sectorial and state law pre-emption, privacy right-of-actions, cost of compliance and the nature of enforcement. It will discuss the impact that CCPA has had on the US Privacy landscape and will ask whether a single privacy framework that remains future-proof and flexible to companies’ data needs can ever be achieved in the USA. Finally, ahead of November’s Presidential and Congressional elections, it will discuss the lessons learned from the various attempts at introducing and passing a bipartisan bill –  which could inspire future efforts by the next administration and congress.

Schrems II, Privacy Shield and International Data Transfers – The Transatlantic Debate

Following the CJEU decision on the ‘Schrems II’ case invalidating the Privacy Shield mechanism while upholding the validity of standard contractual clauses (SCCs), this session will discuss the numerous implications of the ruling on both side of the Atlantic. It will discuss the extent to which this decision will provoke disruptions to transatlantic data flows at a time where they are deemed vital for the survival of businesses. It will explore the impact of the ruling on the day-to-day activities of multinational companies and on the 5,000+ companies, registered to and relying on the program for their daily commercial data transfers as well as analyze what organizations can do to adjust their operations during the transition period. Finally, speakers will examine what will ultimately be needed to ensure the long-term stability of transatlantic data flows.

  • What is the state-of-play regarding transatlantic data transfers? (at the time of the conference)
  • What is being done to reduced the legal uncertainty that emerged from the ECJ decision?
  • What work is being done to modernize SCCs?
  • What support will be available, on both side of the Atlantic, for companies to analyze whether their SCCs are sufficient to ensure that data moving overseas are treated in line with the EU’s GDPR?
  • What is needed so that both sides can work effectively together to create a sustainable replacement to the Privacy Shield?
  • Will the diverging privacy values and the incompatibility of the US surveillance framework with EU privacy protections truly ever be solved?
  • How will this judgement impact the overall debate around the need for a federal privacy law in the US?

Innovation, public interest, personalization & privacy: putting individuals’ trust at the heart of the digital society.

Sound data protection rules and data governance practices are seen as crucial factors to increasing trust in digital services, providing confidence in the way an individual’s data is collected, processed and used. This will allow data-driven innovation to flourish: sectors such as e-commerce, digital advertising and the gig-economy rely heavily on the processing of personal data, providing organizations with deep insights into their users’ behaviors and preferences, and allowing them to offer more personalized services. Personal data also delivers useful insights for the public good as currently illustrated by the collection and use of geolocation and health data of individuals to better respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. For many individuals, however, privacy has become a mounting concern as new digital technologies and data-based business models play a role in their lives, while cases of misuse of personal data make the headlines.

This session will discuss what can be learned from the Covid-19 crisis with regards to privacy principles relating to the collection and use of personal data (such as privacy-by-design, data minimization, purpose and limitation, transparency and accountability). It will explore the extent to which these principles can successfully be adapted to ‘every-day situations’ so that individuals’ confidence in digital technologies can be rebuilt, that trust between citizens and governments, and between consumers and businesses, can be strengthened. It will debate the provisions a possible federal law should have so that consumers and citizens can make informed decisions, understand the true value of their data and continue to benefit from data-driven and personalized solutions without compromising their privacy rights. It will examine the circumstances under which personal data can be legitimately used by private organizations to enhance their solutions and offerings, and by public sector organizations to improve their services at all times. Speakers will also explore the latest data privacy and security tech solutions that have emerged to defend against the misuse or unauthorized use of data and the improvement of transparency.

The $7 Billion Health Tech Gamble: Privacy & Innovation – SIIA

The crush of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought a renewed and keen national attention to the question of health data privacy. What laws regulate our health data? What rights do consumers have with respect to their health data? What can our policymakers do to ensure health data is protected but that we can continue to reap the benefits of innovation? And what even is health data anyway?

These critically important questions shouldn’t fade as we hope the COVID-19 pandemic will. SIIA is a leading voice on the forefront of health data policy ‑ calling for modernization of our health data privacy laws to ensure the responsible safeguarding of health data while promoting value-based solutions for patients and consumers. Join us for a moderated discussion with industry stakeholders across the health privacy spectrum. The discussion will explore how health privacy law needs to be updated and/or created; what policymakers can do to address grey areas in current regulations like HIPAA; and whether stakeholders can work together to identify harmonized policy solutions that work across diverse needs.

Successfully Navigating Data Sourcing & Integration – Acxiom

Scrutiny by regulators and individuals grows every day for businesses and their ethical data collection and use practices.  Do you understand the challenges and red flags inherent in the data sourcing process, as well as, the practices and parameters for integrating the data for marketing use?   Users of personal information must be diligent to create and maintain a data source credentialing program to ensure that all data collected has been permissioned appropriately and is used in a manner that is consistent with  consumer expectations and applicable regulatory requirements.  The purpose of this workshop is to share best practices for sourcing and implementing personal information in compliance with consumer expectations and applicable laws.  In this session, we’ll review the components of vetting a data source for permission, use, and regulatory compliance, and we’ll link the sourcing commitments to how the data is integrated and managed for use in marketing programs.
