Data Privacy in 2021: What’s on the horizon
Everything points to 2020 being a very exciting year for Data Privacy. Recent years have been transformational for data privacy. In the wake of the GDPR, Governments around the world are embracing and enacting new privacy laws and regulations. To date, numerous countries have or are due to adopt GDPR like privacy laws.
These laws will actively define political and social landscapes for years to come. Topics such as 5G, the internet of things, privacy in the workplace, facial recognition, use of biometric data, big data in healthcare and surveillance shall be affected by existing or imminent privacy laws. Tate’s talk focuses on privacy topics and issues that are likely to be relevant in 2020 to Governments, companies, data regulatory bodies and individuals.
Des has been working in the Information Risk Management industry for over 25 years. His background and skillset ranges from the technical to the non-technical through forensics and pen-testing to risk assessment and corporate governance. This allows him to interface between the technologists and the business to facilitate effective communication and understanding between them; achieving compliance in line with business goals.
Previous experience encompasses compliance programmes for HMG and FTSE 100 companies relating to the majority of legislation and regulation; including HSCN CN-SP, the PSN Codes of Practice, IA Maturity Model, Security Policy Framework, Hannigan Review, Data Protection Act 1998/2018, FSA guidelines, Payment Card Data Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the ISO 27000 series of standards and guidelines.
Des’s goals are to build on his wide-ranging experience across different vertical industry sectors to drive a common understanding; where the benefits from effective information risk management can be understood, measured and valued.
More recently, Des has been engaged on the BSI eCommitee for Cyber Risk and Insurance and as an advisor to the NHS Digital Compliance board for the Health and Social Care Network (HSCN), and has been heavily involved in the evolution of the HSCN compliance model itself.
