Flat Light: Data Protection for the Disoriented, From Policy to Practice – Feb. 6

The worlds of data privacy, security and law have always had reference points – or ground truths – that, like physical features in a landscape, served as navigational features for practitioners and policymakers alike. As time has passed and the state of data protection has become more uncertain, these features have eroded. As reference points, they are now either unhelpful (at best) or misleading (at worst). A deep state of disorientation is now upon us. In this talk, Andrew Burt, Chief Privacy Officer and Legal Engineer at Immuta, will explain how we arrived at this point, and suggest how we can re-orient ourselves and find our way to meaningful data protection and security.

This event, which is part of PDG’s “Data Points: Ideas on Data, Law and Society” lecture series, will take place on Wednesday, February 6 from 12:10 p.m. until 1:15 p.m. at Saxbe Auditorium, 55 W. 12th Ave., Columbus, Ohio, 43210. Parking is available in the South Campus Gateway garage. Lunch will be served for advance registrants.
