Privacy- enhancing technologies are revolutionising the way we approach and use highly sensitive data. This panel will explore why capitalising on these developments is essential to drive value moving forwards.

  • Establishing how PETs can deliver additional business value through unlocking previously inaccessible data
  • Practical first-hand examples of successfully identifying relevant use cases, establishing proof of concept and deriving the benefits.
  • What the ROI of PETs will look like and how to measure that after implementation

With New York, Colorado and California as notable examples, the proliferation of state level data privacy regimes is imposing various restrictions on how data can be used. Could PETs simultaneously generate value and minimize regulatory friction?

  • Determining how PETs can comply with disparate regulations across the United States
  • Understanding the regulatory perspective on PETs and why there has been a global governmental push for implementation
  • Assessing which considerations need to be made to avoid regulatory challenge especially when it comes to innovative data sharing initiatives

Use case identification is only half of the battle. It is vital to then determine which of the various PETs are most appropriate to act upon it- especially the case given that in some situations multiple solutions might be required.

  • Collaborating with data science teams to ensure the technology delivers as promised and is stress tested in a variety of situations
  • Understanding differences between technologies and which use cases to apply them to
  • Determining how to effectively allocate resources to ensure maximum ROI

Inevitably, privacy-enhancing technologies are often viewed exclusively as a privacy tool. This panel will discuss whether this is too narrow an assessment that fails to account for the role PETs can play in both the development and maintenance of a profitable data strategy.

  • Bridging the perceived divide between privacy and data teams
  • PETs from a data governance and strategy perspective
  • Achieving data privacy by design and default

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can allow companies to gain greater insights on existing data and explore new ways for that data to then be utilised. PETs can aid this process during development, implementation and monitoring.

  • Synthetic data as a means by which to train AI/ML models- the pros, cons and achieving the best result in practice
  • Utilising AI/ML in conjunction with PETs to help achieve a proactive rather than reactive data stance, cutting costs and saving time
  • Strengthening the ability of enterprise to comply with various requirements from regulators, customers and internal stakeholders especially as ‘Responsible AI’ gains traction.
