The intersection of data protection law and engineering is still young. In many businesses, engineers building systems for laws like CCPA and GDPR suffer from a lack of institutional knowledge on privacy, ambiguity around system requirements, and even ambiguity regarding legal terms - just what is “erasure”? In this presentation, Kelly Huang, VP of Product at privacy startup Ethyca, will give attendees an insight into how modern data privacy laws get operationalized in complex systems, and in so doing, help lift the veil on the many outstanding questions that persist regarding privacy in the engineering community.
