The Irish Data Protection Commissioner, a Dublin Lawyer and a Journalist Walk Into a Casino . . .


What Happens in Vegas . . . Well You Know. So you privacy pros will just have to come to the Bloomberg Law-sponsored International Association of Privacy Professionals Privacy-Security-Risk 2015 Summit to find out what’s happening. Sept. 28 to Oct. 1—two days of training, two days of conference and it’s Vegas, baby.

And right there in the Bellagio on Thursday afternoon will be Bloomberg’s Don Aplin conducting an informal discussion with Ireland’s Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon and Arthur Cox Partner and Head of Technology and Innovation Rob Corbet about Ireland’s oversight of the privacy practices of major digital economy players like Google, Facebook and Apple. 

Under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, which is on track for finalization soon, Ireland’s role as host to the headquarters of many multinationals means it may take on an outsize role in compliance review, complaints handling and enforcement in the 28 member state EU. 

In the meantime, how about being a nice Privacy Pro and taking a really short survey—no honest, only 11 questions—for a report Bloomberg Law and the IAPP are developing on how privacy professionals in for-profit companies assess and mitigate risk within their organizations an how outside privacy counsel assists with this challenging task. The report will be released at the summit.
