From Problems to Patterns to Practice: Privacy and User Respect in a Complex World

Lea Kissner, Product Privacy Lead and Principal Engineer, Google

Abstract: 

Privacy means many things to many people, things that every system and product needs to understand and support. There are only two constants: (1) requirements will change and (2) that change will be an increase. This talk will discuss our strategy for building products and systems that deeply respect users, practical issues we see in real-world products and systems, and how the make-up of your team influences your success.
