Operational good practice for compliance with data protection and privacy laws has always required the holders and users of personal information to evaluate the extent to which "Privacy Enhancing Technologies" (or "PETs") can be deployed in order to achieve desired outcomes, such as data minimisation, accuracy and security, and the fulfilment of individual rights, such as the right of access and the right to be forgotten.
These requirements oblige organisations to go much further than the deployment of paper solutions, such as policies, procedures and contracts: instead, we need to go on "The Journey to Code", to ensure that the desired outcomes are delivered in technology and data themselves.
The need for Privacy Enhancing Technologies has created a new tech and data industry, which we are calling "PrivacyTech". Leading PrivacyTech businesses are now receiving considerable financial investments, to support their continued growth and expansion, reflecting the vast size and scale of the addressable markets for PETs.
In this session we will explain the operational and legal cases for PrivacyTech and the deployment of PETs; the fundraising options that are available for PrivacyTech businesses; and the lessons learned along the way to obtaining investment and scaling the business.
Who should attend?
Attendees will include C-Suite officers of PrivacyTech, RegTech, SecurityTech and AdTech businesses, their owners and investors; Venture Capital and Private Equity investment funds and Corporate Finance advisers; Chief Privacy Officers, Data Protection Officers, CISOs and General Counsel.
