You are invited to hear our experts discuss the impact of APP 8 on privacy compliance with a practical focus on data handling by global organisations and cloud computing. The workshop also will cover the basics of the new APPs with a spotlight on APP 8 (including guidelines released by the OAIC) [TBC].

The fifth iappANZ annual one-day conference was a super-charged day of practical and insightful educational content designed to inspire and inform delegates. 

The program brought together on stage luminaries from government (including privacy regulators), privacy professionals in business and academia, making it the most important conference on the privacy professional’s calendar.

The conference comprised a mix of presentations, discussions and panels creating a dynamic platform for delegates to engage with esteemed thought leaders who will share their ideas and debate topical issues faced by professionals in the data protection, academic, governance, risk and compliance sectors.

For the first time, the afternoon session was split into two streams and delegates chose from an engaging panel on global privacy regulatory changes or a workshop on how to conduct privacy impact assessments. The latter was run by Malcolm Crompton from Information Integrity Solutions P/L and Anna Johnston from Salinger Privacy. Both of the workshop and panel sessions were also available separately for people who aren’t able to attend the whole conference. 

Other conference highlights included,  ‘A Day in the Life of a Privacy Professional’ panel where delegates heard from representatives in the telecommunications, health insurance and banking industries on managing privacy for their companies’ customers. 

The conference also provided delegates with the opportunity to learn about the impact of the new privacy reforms from a regulatory and business perspectivesurveillance and privacy as well as many other topical issues.

To maximise on the day’s learnings and continue the conversation, there was a Cocktail Reception directly after the close of the conference. This was free for delegates. 

Program available here (subject to change).

Guest Speaker Abstract: "Privacy in the Private Sector"

 

Recent survey indicates that although many organisations have defined policy for classification and handling of sensitive data as a control for data leakage risk, they have not implemented effective data loss prevention programs and tools. This has multiple potential consequences including brand and reputation damage, loss of competitive advantage, customer and market share and regulatory fines and penalties.

An effective privacy and data protection program addresses the management, control and procedures  around data loss prevention, resulting in greater safeguarding of privacy.

The purpose of this presentation is to discuss contemporary information protection and privacy methods and techniques to achieving improved data loss prevention, supporting overall enterprise risk management, which includes:

  • insights on information security from the Ernst & Young 2011 Global Information Security Survey
  • risks relating to data privacy and leakage and examples of what can go wrong
  • information protection models and privacy audits
  • thought leadership around  privacy trends in 2012 and integration of privacy protection into IT transformations.

Identity and Privacy: A special iappANZ-Internet Identity Workshop | 22 March 2012 | Sydney 

 

The iappANZ presented “Identity Woman”, Kaliya Hamlin, a Canadian living in the United States, to facilitate a dynamic, hands-on discussion of the interplay between privacy and digital identity, and the latest initiatives to improve safety online.

Kaliya's visit to Australia was timely, as the federal Government is renewing its strategic involvement in the identity marketplace by studying the concept of a National Trust Identity Framework. While industry calls for the Commonwealth's Document Verification Service (DVS) to be opened up, newElectronic Verification services have emerged to enable purely online bank account origination under recent financial transactions reporting law reforms. And debates rage about anonymity, the roles of new identity providers, social login versus traditional evidence-of-identity, smartcards versus smart phones.

About the event

A half day dynamic discussion of privacy and digital identity

The discussion was self-organised around a number of topics suggested and distilled by the audience. Identity Woman (who has led hundreds of similar workshops) facilitated the agenda setting. 

About Identity Woman

Kaliya Hamlin, known as Identity Woman, co-founded the world's leading industry forum focused on user-centre digital identity, the Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) which has convened every six months in Silicon Valley since 2005. It is a unique event in part because there is no pre-set agenda; instead the agenda is created live at the beginning of the event, making it an "UnConference".

Two years ago, seeing the emerging possibility of individuals collecting, managing and gaining value from their personal data generated as they interact with all kinds of digital systems, she founded the Personal Data Ecosystem Consortium to catalyze industry development and collaboration. She identifies as a nymwarrior because she was personally affected by Google's insistence she use her “real name” as the headline on her profile. With others she fights for the right to have different, unlinked personae: different identifiers for different contexts online.

Kaliya advises the World Economic Forum's Rethinking Personal Data project. In 2010 she presented at the (US) National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace Privacy Workshop. She sits on the OASIS IDTrust member steering committee and is active in the Federated Social Web which recently moved its work to the W3C.

She is also an internationally recognised designer and facilitator of interactive UnConferences. She is invited by professional technical communities around the world to help create catalytic environments for cross disciplinary innovation and diffusion.
