InsurTechNY & PrivacyTechNY: Big Data, Analytics, and Enterprise Privacy 2.0

About this Event

Big Data, Analytics, and Enterprise Privacy

2020 represents a major shift in Enterprise Privacy. Through a series of breaches and data mishaps, the public has realized how ubiquitous their personal data has become and the risks of dissemination or breach. GDPR and CCPA mark the first major legislation to introduce opt-out options for consumers and major fines for violators.

January 1, 2020, marks the first data for which companies must comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) or face potential litigation. To date, most enterprises have been waiting on the sidelines for clarity around the law. However, waiting is no longer an option.

Organizations must proactively cultivate new opportunities or face impending compliance nightmares and emergent legal and reputational risks. To intelligently navigate the landscape, this Event presents experienced thought leaders across multiple disciplines – privacy officers, business leaders, and technologists – to provide forward-looking, authoritative and pragmatic guidance for an effective transition to Enterprise Privacy 2.0.
