    The Privacy Advisor Podcast: How do we overcome gridlock on U.S. privacy legislation?

    The Privacy Advisor Podcast: How do we overcome gridlock on U.S. privacy legislation?

    When the world was turned upside down with the COVID-19 pandemic and then the murder of George Floyd in the U.S., any momentum we’d started to see on passing a federal privacy bill was lost — at least temporarily. But Cam Kerry is aiming to change that by re-igniting bi-partisan conversations with a report proposing how we might overcome the impasse we've found ourselves at in two crucial areas: federal pre-emption and a private right of action. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Kerry discusses how to bridge the divide.

    The Privacy Advisor Podcast: A dispatch from Brussels

    There is so much privacy news related to the pandemic lately that it sometimes feels like that's the only news. But the world continues to spin, if more quietly, as most of its population works from the comfort of their homes. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Angelique Carson chats with Brussels-based freelance journalist Jennifer Baker about two government data breaches, the latest on activist Max Schrems and his complaints, as well as recent criticisms on the level of DPA enforcement now that the GDPR has turned two.

    The Privacy Advisor Podcast: He's Bermuda's first privacy commissioner

    The Privacy Advisor Podcast: He's Bermuda's first privacy commissioner

    Especially now, while most of us are stuck indoors hiding from the invisible monster that is the COVID-19 disease, it's not difficult to imagine better days — days when we can safely travel again to faraway islands with blue-glass waters and sandy beaches. Or, you could do what Alex White did and move there. The former deputy chief privacy officer of South Carolina didn't move to the island for a vacation, though. He took the job as the country's first-ever privacy commissioner, a position created with the passage of Bermuda's privacy law in 2016. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, White talks to host Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, about the challenges of starting up a new office — especially in the midst of a global pandemic — and why he thinks privacy professionals should think of themselves as, of all things, GPS devices.

    The Privacy Advisor Podcast: GDPR-based class actions on the rise

    The Privacy Advisor Podcast: GDPR-based class actions on the rise

    The EU General Data Protection Regulation ushered in an enhanced private right of action for violations of the law, both for material and non-material damages. Attorneys say there's now a significant uptick in cases brought alleging such a grievance has occurred, and that they're often brought as a "follow-on" to data protection authorities' own investigations. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Orrick attorneys Keily Blair and James Lloyd, both based in the U.K., describe the uptick in civil litigation claims they're seeing and the ways that's changing things — including how companies interact with data protection authorities.

    The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Does privacy even matter right now?

In a time like this, it can feel hard to find meaning in the day-to-day work of being a privacy professional. In this fireside-chat style podcast, IAPP Editor Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, talks with three DC-based privacy professionals -- who happen to also be three of her best friends -- about how they're coping and staying focused on their individual missions.

Great job Angelique!

I enjoy this podcast Angelique Carson does a great job picking guests and topics. She’s a curious person and isn’t afraid to ask the basic questions. I think anyone interested in privacy at all even if they don’t work in the field would get something out of it

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.
