Don’t Let Your PIA be a PITA! Reinvigorate Your Approach to Privacy Assessments

October 5, 2023 from 3:45 pm to 5:00 pm (EDT)

If you are attending the IAPP Privacy. Security. Risk. 2023 Conference in San Diego on October 5 – 6, 2023 we invite you to join Partner Aaron Burstein and other industry professionals for a panel discussion entitled Don’t Let Your PIA be a PITA! Reinvigorate Your Approach to Privacy Assessments.

The road to the regulator’s radar is paved with good intentions. Risk and privacy impact assessments start with clear minds and hearts, only to spiral into a cumbersome obligation that drains stakeholder morale and resources. To compensate, many organizations’ assessments become ​“check-the-box” exercises that lose sight of underlying purposes and the value assessments can provide to the business and consumers alike. When done right, risk and privacy impact assessments are powerful tools in your arsenal. And regulators expect more: Colorado, for instance, calls for a ​“genuine, thoughtful analysis” in data protection assessment. Don’t let your risk and privacy impact assessments become a liability to the business. In this session, experts discuss how to implement a meaningful and sustainable process for conducting risk and privacy impact assessments — without turning them into a liability — to demonstrate compliance with legal obligations and add business value.

What you will learn:

  • Get actionable steps to operationalizing the privacy risk assessment process.
  • Understand how to manage risks involved in developing privacy risk assessments and PIAs.
  • Learn to use assessments as the foundation for ongoing compliance monitoring and testing.

In addition, you are invited to participate in a pre-conference workshop hosted by Kelley Drye partners Alysa Hutnik, Laura VanDruff and Aaron Burstein, and industry partner, Ketch, on October 4 at the Pendry Hotel. Join us as we discuss data deletion, sensitive personal information, and data protection impact assessments. This workshop is highly interactive. We look forward to this time of collaboration and knowledge sharing. Register here.
