What is the current state of affairs?


Lotame's General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer, Amy Yeung, sits with Kim Smouter-Umans, Head of Public Affairs and Professional Standards at ESOMAR, to discuss the state of privacy before COVID-19; current privacy considerations; and preparing for the rebound and what may lie ahead.



What you will take away from the session


We will address the current state of play with the California Consumer Privacy Act which is still set to enter into force on 1 July 2020, business continuity issues and practical evaluations from a data privacy perspective, and how to address research dealing with health data.

Further key questions will arise in this new environment:

  • What are the key changes businesses have to make to their privacy frameworks in light of the ongoing pandemic?
  • How do we work with health data?
  • What are the key data privacy considerations for health app developers?
  • How can businesses prepare for rebound looking towards the future?
  • Where do the AI and third-party cookies developments fit into future planning?


Who is this webinar for?


This webinar will be useful for any business currently operating in the US or planning to do so in the future. It is also intended for any professionals wanting to impart more knowledge on the status of data privacy within their business, to clients, or to their colleagues.
