    Privacy and data protection in 2023: A year in review with Joe Jones

    Privacy and data protection in 2023: A year in review with Joe Jones

    Hard to believe we’re at the twilight of 2023. For those following data protection and privacy developments, each year seems to bring with it a torrent of news and developments. This past year was no different. The EU General Data Protection Regulation turned five, and the Snowden revelations turned 10. From a finalized EU-US Data Privacy Framework, to major enforcement actions on Big Tech companies, to a panoply of new data protection laws in India and at least 7 US states, to the dramatic rise of AI governance, 2023 was as robust as ever.
    To help flesh out some of the big takeaways from 2023, IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy caught up with IAPP Research & Insights Director Joe Jones, who joined the IAPP at the outset of the year.

    Luca Bertuzzi on the EU AI Act political deal and what's next

    Luca Bertuzzi on the EU AI Act political deal and what's next

    After a gruelling trilogue process that featured two marathon negotiating sessions, the European Union finally came to a political agreement 8 December on what will be the world’s first comprehensive regulation of artificial intelligence. The EU AI Act will be a risk-based, horizontal regulation with far-reaching provisions for companies and organizations using, designing or deploying AI systems.
    Though the so-called trilogue process is a fairly opaque one, where the European Parliament, European Commision and Council of the EU negotiate behind closed doors, journalist Luca Bertuzzi has acted as a window into the process through his persistent reporting for Euractiv.
    IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy caught up with Bertuzzi to discuss the negotiations and what comes next in the process.

    Martin Abrams: A look back at a career in information privacy and consumer policy

    Martin Abrams: A look back at a career in information privacy and consumer policy

    Martin Abrams knows a little something about information privacy and consumer policy. Over the course of the last 40-plus years, Abrams has had his hands in a number of initiatives, including as co-founder and president of the Center for Information Policy Leadership and founder of the Information Accountability Foundation. He took part in the development of the APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules and the OECD’s Working Party on Information Security and Privacy. Abram's work on transparency and accountability has been influential on policy makers around the world.
    At the latest Global Privacy Assembly in Bermuda, Abrams announced he was retiring from his full-time position at IAF and taking more time to be with his family. IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy caught up with Abrams to take a look back at his career, the changes he’s seen in information policy and where he thinks data policy and regulation are heading.

    EU policymakers discuss the EU AI Act negotiations at DPC23

    EU policymakers discuss the EU AI Act negotiations at DPC23

    The EU AI Act negotiations recently hit a major roadblock after EU Council Member States France and Germany unexpectedly pushed back on the European Parliament's draft position on regulating foundation models. The obstacle was so sudden, it appeared the negotiations were in a stalemate. Though the issue has not yet been fully resolved, the Spanish presidency of the EU Council is reportedly working with Member States to find a position that is workable for the European Parliament. 
    This comes as the IAPP hosts its sold out Data Protection Congress 2023 in Brussels, Belgium. To be sure, the foundation model issue is not the only sticking point remaining in the trilogue negotiations. There are others. 
    To get the inside scoop, I had the chance to catch up with EU AI Act co-rapportuer Dragoș Tudorache and Kai Zenner, head of staff for German MEP Axel Voss about the negotiations, the obstacles and whether there will be an agreement before next year's parliamentary elections.

    Catching up with the co-author of the White House Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights

    Catching up with the co-author of the White House Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights

    As automated systems rapidly develop and embed themselves into modern life, policy makers around the world are taking note and, in some cases, stepping in. Earlier this year, the Biden-Harris administration took an early step by releasing a Blue Print for an AI Bill of Rights. Comprising five main principles, as well as what should be expected of automated systems, while offering a slate of real-world examples of the potential harms and benefits of artificial intelligence, the Blueprint is a must-read for AI governance and privacy professionals working in the space.
    Suresh Venkatasubramanian is a Professor of Computer Science and Data Science at Brown University. He also co-authored the Blueprint while serving as Assistant Director for Science and Justice in the White House Office of Technology and Policy.
    IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy recently caught up with Suresh to learn more about his work on the Blueprint, how it fits into the broader spectrum of existing AI guidelines and frameworks, and what professionals should know about this rights-based document.

    Assessing the Snowden revelations 10 years later

    Assessing the Snowden revelations 10 years later

    In June 2013, a series of high-profile U.S. government surveillance disclosures to major media outlets rippled throughout the world and changed the calculus for the privacy profession. 


    Hard to believe it's now been 10 years since an unknown U.S. government contractor leaked to the world massive amounts of information about top secret U.S. intelligence programs. Within weeks, Edward Snowden became a household, if not, controversial name — not only in the privacy profession — but to consumers and citizens far and wide. A lot has transpired since the summer of Snowden in 2013. The U.S. has altered some of its surveillance laws, and the trans-Atlantic relationship between the U.S. and EU has grown complicated after a series of data transfer agreements were struck down by the EU's highest court. The third such agreement is pending. 
     
    Though the privacy world is constantly changing, it seems fitting to stop and take stock of this last decade to see how much, if anything, has changed. To help measure the ripple effect, IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy chatted with IAPP Senior Research Fellow Muge Fazlioglu and Research and Insights Director Joe Jones to uncover what's changed in the U.S. and abroad, as well as how consumer attitudes have evolved since then.

Helpful and accessible

I love this podcast and I find it really helpful in understanding issues around privacy. Particularly in the light of the GDPR which becomes enforceable May 2018.
