The EU AI Act: A discussion with MEP and Co-rapporteur Dragoș Tudorache
Nearly five years after the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, Europe is immersed in a digital market strategy that is giving rise to a host of new, interconnected regulation. Among this complexity resides the proposed Artificial Intelligence Act. Originally presented by the European Commission April 2021, the AI Act is now in the hands of the Council of the European Union and European Parliament.
If passed, this would be the world’s first comprehensive, horizontal regulation of AI.
On my visit to Brussels for the IAPP Data Protection Congress, I had the opportunity to meet with AI Act Co-rapportuer and Romanian Member of Parliament Dragoș Tudorache in his office.
During our extended conversation, we discussed the risk-framework for the proposal, how the legislation will intersect with existing regulations, like the GDPR, current sticking points with stakeholders and what this means for privacy and data protection professionals.
What the 2022 midterm election results mean for US privacy law
The highly anticipated mid-term elections in the U.S. so far have provided surprising results. Many political pundits expected a “red wave” of Republican candidates to take over both chambers of U.S. Congress. Though control of Congress is still up in the air, Democrats fared better than most expected.
With some of the dust now settled, what do the 2022 midterm results mean for potential passage of the American Data Privacy and Protection Act, both in the lame duck session and the 118th Congress? Will House and Senate committee assignments change? What do the mid-term results mean for enforcement by federal agencies, like the Federal Trade Commission? And how will the results affect state privacy legislation in 2023 and beyond?
To help shed light on these issues, I caught up with R Street Resident Senior Fellow for Cybersecurity and Emerging Threats Brandon Pugh and Public Knowledge Senior Policy Counsel Sara Collins.
On the need for intimate privacy - A chat with Danielle Citron
As we round out 2022, digital technology is further embedding itself into our daily lives. Beyond the smartphone’s ubiquity, wearable sensors proliferate and are found everywhere from the gym to the bedroom. Intimate relationships are formed through dating apps more than ever before. We’re tracked in our cars, in retail establishments and online.
At no time in history has data collection been as prevalent as it is now, and it’s only increasing. But what does that mean for the development of our identities and relationships, particularly for those who are most vulnerable? University of Virginia School of Law Prof. Danielle Citron has long explored these issues, which she’s presented in her new book, “The Fight for Privacy: Protecting Dignity, Identity and Love in the Digital Age.”
I recently caught up with Prof. Citron to discuss her work, and how law – particularly civil rights law – society and privacy pros can all play a role in protecting what makes us human.
A chat with U.K. Information Commissioner John Edwards
Since becoming U.K. Information Commissioner, John Edwards has been busy. Officially taking the reigns January 4, Edwards embarked on a listening tour to learn the ins and outs of the U.K. The former New Zealand Privacy Commissioner gave his first major public speech since heading up the ICO at the IAPP Data Protection Intensive in London last month and joined German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information Ulrich Kelber for a “commissioner’s chat” at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit in Washington, DC. While there, The Privacy Advisor Podcast host Jedidiah Bracy caught up with Edwards in person to discuss his priorities, how he foresees working with other data protection authorities, his thoughts on transborder data flows and the U.K.’s potential changes to it data protection law, and, most importantly, what he’s currently listening to for music.
Children's privacy and safety: A conversation with Kalinda Raina
In 1998, the U.S. was the first nation to enact a privacy law specifically tailored to protect children’s data. Nearly 25 years later, COPPA – the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act – is one of several children’s privacy and data protection laws around the world. LinkedIn Vice President and Chief Privacy Officer Kalinda Raina first encountered the draft COPPA bill while interning at the Center for Democracy & Technology. In the years since, she has helped lead the privacy efforts at Nintendo and Apple. With three children of her own, Kalinda has an in-depth knowledge of children’s privacy issues, both as a parent and privacy pro. Her passion for the issue led her to start a YouTube channel to help educate parents and kids about privacy and safety issues and to shepherd a new book called “Children’s Privacy and Safety,” published by the IAPP. The Privacy Advisor Podcast host Jedidiah Bracy recently caught up with Kalinda to discuss children’s privacy, her work, and the new book.
Talking Strategic Privacy by Design with Jason Cronk
The concept of privacy and data protection by design is not new in the privacy world. We know that privacy should be integrated in the foundational design of a product or service; that is should be baked in, not bolted on. But what that means in practice is often elusive. In 2018, Enterprivacy Consulting Group founder Jason Cronk wrote the book Strategic Privacy by Design, which was published by the IAPP. In it, Cronk offered insights for building processes, products and services that consider an individual’s privacy interests as a requirement. In the four years since, law and technology have continued to evolve, prompting Jason to write a second edition of the book. The IAPP's Jedidiah Bracy recently caught up with Cronk to discuss his work in designing for privacy and what’s new in his second edition.
Please do something about the audio quality
Great Content Poor Audio
I love the content(less banter) it’s extremely useful for learning and understanding privacy. However the audio quality leaves something to be desired. Keep up the good work though.
Audio is bad
I didn’t know how important the audio was until I heard this podcast. I can’t continue
