The Privacy Advisor Podcast: An EU journalist's perspectiveThe Privacy Advisor Podcast add
Jennifer Baker makes a career out of knowing the nuances of data protection and data privacy. But she's she's not advising clients or writing privacy policies. Rather, as a freelance journalist, reporting on the developments that often guide the decision making of those who do. Baker has spent years developing sources inside European institutions and businesses, and in this episode of The Privacy Advisor, host Angelique Carson talks with Baker about reporting on the privacy beat from Brussels.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Johnny Ryan part 2, on ad tech's crisisThe Privacy Advisor Podcast add
You may have heard Johnny Ryan on this podcast before. Last year, he came on to talk about the ad tech industry and what needs to happen within it for it to thrive under the General Data Protection Regulation. Ryan says, while there's some movement in the direction he thinks will best serve the industry -- namely, advertising without collecting any personal data online at all, there isn't enough. He's worried that if ad tech companies don't transition, and fast, the economic impact will be something akin to the financial meltdown the U.S. faced a few years back. In this episode, Ryan discusses what he believes needs to change, and how, for the industry to save itself.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Pfeifle's dispatch from the EUThe Privacy Advisor Podcast add
If you were to look at a heat map of where the IAPP has seen a particular frenzy of activity in the last year or so, the EU would undoubtedly be glowing red. Unsurprisingly, that's largely due to the changing legal landscape thanks to the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation. Because of that, IAPP Content Director Sam Pfeifle decided it was a good time to head from company headquarters in the U.S. to visit with some of our members standing firmly at the forefront of such a sweeping change. It may be surprising to some that Pfeifle has found privacy pros, while perhaps slightly panicked, embracing the GDPR as an empowering tool, one that's elevated their role and significance within the company; it's "given them the pulpit." In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Pfeifle discusses what he's seeing on the ground.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast: She's where tech, policy and passion collideThe Privacy Advisor Podcast add

Merrill was named one the 2017 Top Women in Security, she did a stint at the Federal Trade Commission as part of a National Science Foundation program and she runs the Crypto and Privacy Village each year at DEFCON, for which she's working hard to up the number of women represented there. In this episode of the podcast, Merrill talks about her path to finding what she loves, and how early experiences with cyber bullying pushed her in that direction.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Ready, Set, GDPRThe Privacy Advisor Podcast add
Gabe Maldoff is a young guy. He graduated law school in 2015, got himself a fellowship at the IAPP's Westin Center, and then immediately went to work at London's Bird & Bird. And just as he was adjusting to life in the real world, the world itself was adjusting to what would be expected of it under Europe's new privacy regime via the GDPR. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Maldoff talks to host Angelique Carson about how his early experiences in Tanzania shaped his future career, establishing himself at this unprecedented time in privacy and data protection, and his predictions for U.K. data protection policies post-Brexit.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast Special Edition: What you need to know about the House vote on Section 702The Privacy Advisor Podcast add
As we reported in the Daily Dashboard yesterday, The U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday morning to renew Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendments Act for six years. An alternative bill put forth by Reps. Justin Amash, R-Mich., and Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., was voted down. The alternative bill, which garnered support from liberal and conservative civil liberties lawmakers, would have required that the government get a warrant prior to searching through the data of American citizens. Prior to the vote Thursday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted out two conflicting posts about Section 702, prompting House Democrats to ask for a delay in the House vote. In this episode, IAPP Westin Fellow Lee Matheson talks to Angelique Carson about what privacy pros should know about yesterday's vote and what it means for coming days.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Was 2017 just the amuse-bouche for 2018?The Privacy Advisor Podcast add
By any measure, 2017 was a banner year for privacy. Here at the IAPP, we saw an incredible surge of activity, from attendance at IAPP KnowledgeNets and Privacy After Hours, to certifications, to podcast listens. The most obvious push behind that surge was that four-letter word, the "GDPR." But interpreting the text of the EU's new data protection regime wasn't the only news that mattered in 2017. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, the IAPP Publications Team sits around the microphone on a cold December day to discuss the highlights of the year in privacy and what to expect from the IAPP in 2018.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast: What's Congress going to do with Section 702?The Privacy Advisor Podcast add
Under the 2008 FISA Amendments Act, Section 702 allows U.S. intelligence agencies to conduct surveillance on persons overseas it believes to be a potential threat. But the government is forbidden from collecting intelligence via Section 702 on persons “reasonably believed” to be within the U.S. or even a U.S. person outside of U.S. borders. But critics say there’s reason to believe U.S. persons are often incidentally the target of investigations, despite the rules stating otherwise, and that the secrecy surrounding intelligence operations allows it to happen en masse. Section 702 is set to expire on Dec. 31, and intelligence officials have argued it should be renewed wholesale. But critics of the program say it should be renewed only with amendments that increase privacy protections for innocent Americans whose data may be swept up in the data collected. And what happens with 702 may have a broader impact on international agreements like the Privacy Shield, for example, which is already on shaky ground, in part, because of concerns over U.S. intelligence agencies use of the data it collects. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, travels to American University to talk to law professor Jennifer Daskal to talk about what she thinks might happen on or before Dec. 31.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Odia Kagan knew from age threeThe Privacy Advisor Podcast add
Odia Kagan knew she wanted to be an attorney at age three. As the story goes, she was found crafting a list of the harms she suffered at the hands of her then-one-month-old younger sister. Though that might have been child’s play, Kagan never deviated from her dream of becoming a lawyer. Though she spent her youth in Israel, she moved to the U.S. nine years ago, and she's now a transactional attorney in the U.S. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Kagan discusses the differences she perceived practicing in both jurisdictions, many of them cultural, and how she stays ahead of the curve advising clients in the face of emerging technologies.

The Privacy Advisor Podcast special edition: The Equifax breachThe Privacy Advisor Podcast add
The news of the Equifax breach hits last Thursday afternoon, and it’s the Target breach on crack, right?

The Privacy Advisor Podcast: What to do if you know you won't be ready for the GDPRThe Privacy Advisor Podcast add
This episode of the The Privacy Advisor Podcast features a return guest. Chris Zoladz owns Navigate, a consultancy. His podcast is the most listened to episode since we started this thing, with almost 1,900 listens at the time of this writing. Besides the fact that Chris is a likeable and smart guy, the reason for that is likely because his first podcast with us was about how to prep for the General Data Protection Regulation. He told us all about the ways companies were getting ahead, or, in many cases, falling behind, and where privacy professionals should get started. In this follow-up episode, Zoladz talks to host Angelique Carson on what he advises privacy professionals do if they're not ready for the GDPR, and they know it. Hint: It's not a bad idea to prioritize your regulator- and consumer-facing processes.

The idea of the game is to educate: If you aren't careful, the information you publicly share could be used against you in nefarious ways. This year, Tobac went back to defend her title. Here's what happened.
