As we previously reported, Covington was selected from thousands of applicants to host a Privacy by Design bootcamp and workshop during last week’s South by Southwest (“SXSW”) Interactive festival, which featured five days of compelling presentations and panels from industry leaders in emerging technology. SXSW designs workshops in particular to provide in-depth, hands-on education taught by innovative leaders. To close out our coverage of SXSW, below is a workshop recap for those who couldn’t make it to Austin this year.
With the premise that businesses are eager to build privacy considerations into all phases of their activities in this new era of “big data,” our Privacy By Design Bootcamp provided a step-by-step guide to develop and integrate Privacy by Design (“PbD”) into any organization. The workshop was well-attended, with audience members representing a diversity of sectors, including tech, financial, health, data, security, and academia, allowing for informative discussion spanning several industries. The workshop started with the history of PbD and then presented examples of real-world PbD, including basic elements of an effective program. We also walked through specific steps to initiate a successful PbD program, including implementing policies and procedures and examining the data lifecycle. The outline below addresses some key topics from our Privacy by Design workshop. If you’re interested in learning more, please contact PbD Bootcamp leaders Libbie Canter and Meena Harris.
