Design Process Standard Deep Dive | Privacy Engineering & Technology Education Discussion (PETed) Recording

Join our IOPD Privacy Engineering & Technology Education Discussion (PETed) Series! The format of the webinar will be a recorded 10-minute introduction followed by a 40-minute informal discussion and interaction with members of the IOPD. The goal will be a discussion on how to solve a specific privacy problem or privacy related resource topic and the latest implementation techniques for some of the biggest challenges like synthetic data, zero-knowledge proofs, homomorphic encryption, and translucent databases.

The participants will be asked to bring questions related to the topic. Come back the fourth Thursday of every month for a new discussion, new speaker, and new insights on the most cutting-edge privacy challenges.



Date & Time:

June 27, 2024 @ 12:00 PM EDT / 6:00 PM CEST



Design Process Standard Deep Dive



IOPD President R Jason Cronk welcomes you to ask all your burning questions about the Design Process Standard published last year. The need for this standard is a culmination of several factors, and details the components necessary in a design process to incorporate privacy considerations and reduce privacy risks to individuals. The process could be the design of products, services or business processes and spans the lifecycle from ideation to deployment. This standard covers privacy and is not limited to “data protection” or any specific jurisdictional approach. Privacy is a broader concept than data protection and covers all interactions between individuals and others in society and the social norms governing those interactions. This standard is purposefully ambiguous in that regards.


Problem Statement:

Privacy by design is an international concept that has been promoted by regulators worldwide and has been adopted into laws and regulations. Until now, it has been ‘squishy’, hard to define, and difficult to implement.
