International Privacy Summit: Identity, Trust & Standards

by International Privacy Summit May 22nd: Advanced Privacy For Brands


INTERNATIONAL PRIVACY SUMMIT: identity, trust, standards

The Kantara International Privacy Summit is focused on the business-critical issue of common standards for privacy and identity management. Selection of the right standards is a key strategic choice and can build competitive advantage, avoid costly vendor lock-in and regulatory risk. It is vital the executive management of any large enterprise is familiar with the available standards before embarking on costly GDPR compliance projects.

Why Are Privacy and Identity Management Standards So Important?

For business, common standards enable scalability and enhance interoperability within and across organisations and sectors. Standards can also form a solid foundation for internal governance arrangements or industry-wide codes of conduct. Implementation of codes of conduct allows industry to demonstrate compliance with GDPR.

For customers, prospects and employees the consistency of a standards-based approach by organisations using their personal information is easier for them to understand and navigate. The consistent user experience brought about by privacy standards also aids individuals’ learning about their rights and how to exercise them. This empowerment of the individual balances the relationship between the individual and the organisation, which is key to building lasting trust.

Why Come to the International Privacy Summit?

The Kantara International Privacy Summit provides the business-focused insight needed at the board level to navigate the issues where standards for privacy and identity management can help exploit business opportunities and mitigate the business risks of GDPR and PSD2.

In addition, delegates can meet and network with the privacy experts who have been involved in drafting the laws, policies and standards that are now being implemented in businesses across Europe. These experts will debate the critical issues so delegates can determine how to best safeguard their brands and businesses.

The packed agenda includes world leading privacy standards experts such as Robin Wilton, of the Internet Society and internationally respected data privacy and governance thought leaders such as Bojana Bellamy, President at Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL) and Chris Disspain from ICANN.
