Anonos CEO to speak at the 13th International CPDP Data Protection and Artificial Intelligence Conference in Brussels

Panel to focus on overcoming the limitations of consent when establishing controls for lawful AI and secondary processing

LONDON and BRUSSELS, Jan. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Gary LaFever, Co-founder, CEO and General Counsel of data privacy and enablement technology provider, Anonos, will be hosting a panel at the 13th International CPDP Data Protection and Artificial Intelligence Conference in Brussels this week. The event will take place in the Grande Halle at 08.45 on Thursday 23rd January. Gary will be leading an interactive discussion with representatives of EU member state Data Protection Authorities and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) regarding technical and organizational controls necessary for lawful AI and secondary processing when consent is not enough.

As one of the world's leading conferences in data protection, CPDP gathers academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy makers, industry and civil society from all over the world to exchange ideas and discuss the latest emerging issues and trends relating to legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection.

With AI as the central theme for this year's show, Gary LaFever will be leading a discussion about the safeguards that must be put in place to ensure that fundamental rights are protected while still fostering an environment that encourages innovation. The panel will cover how proper implementation of technical and organizational controls can help to support alternative approaches to lawful data use when consent is not sufficient to protect privacy.

The panel will cover:

  • AI and secondary (further) data processing have the potential to advance societal goals
  • Consent is often not available as a legal basis for AI and secondary (further) processing
  • Technical and organizational controls can help to support alternative approaches to lawful data use when consent is not enough
  • Pseudonymisation and Data Protection by Design and by Default - as newly defined under the GDPR - provide examples of effective technical safeguards and controls

"Just this week it was reported that the EU's GDPR privacy law has led to over 160,000 data breach notifications, generating $126m in fines since it was introduced almost two years ago." said Gary LaFever, Co-Founder, CEO and General Counsel at Anonos. He added: "In today's data driven world, new technical measures are required to help balance data innovation and protection of individual privacy rights because in many situations consent is no longer enough. GDPR regulator guidance recognises the inadequacy of consent as used in the past. Only new technical safeguards can buttress consent as the new bulwark of individual privacy while enabling innovation. This panel will look at this topic in detail showing how pseudonymisation helps to provide a technological solution to support alternative approaches to lawful data use when consent is not available."

Are you facing any of these 4 problems with data?

You need a solution that removes the impediments to achieving speed to insight, lawfully & ethically

Roadblocks
to Insight
Are you unable to get desired business outcomes from your data within critical time frames? 53% of CDOs cannot achieve their desired uses of data. Are you one of them?
Lack of
Access
Do you have trouble getting access to the third-party data that you need to maximise the value of your data assets? Are third-parties and partners you work with worried about liability, or disruption of their operations?
Inability to
Process
Are you unable to process data due to limitations imposed by internal or external parties? Do they have concerns about your ability to control data use, sharing or combining?
Unlawful
Activity
Are you unable to defend the lawfulness of your current data processing activities, or data processing you have done in the past?
THE PROBLEM
Traditional privacy technologies focus on protecting data by putting it in “cages,” “containers,” or limiting use to centralised processing only. This limitation is done without considering the context of what the desired data use will be, including decentralised data sharing and combining. These approaches are based on decades-old, limited-use perspectives on data protection that severely minimise the kinds of data uses that remain available after controls have been applied. On the other hand, many other new data-use technologies focus on delivering desired business outcomes without considering that roadblocks may exist, such as those noted in the four problems above.
THE SOLUTION
Anonos technology allows data to be accessed and processed in line with desired business outcomes (including sharing and combining data) with full awareness of, and the ability to remove, potential roadblocks.
