Join our Vice President, Janelle Hsia, and Committee Member, Nicole Nguyen, at the 2023 Phoenix Security & Audit Conference October 12th on the Emerging Issues track in the Primrose Room from 9:45 – 10:45 am! This combined event from the local chapters of the ISSA, ISACA, and the IIA provides great networking and educational opportunities. The conference provides multiple sessions of content along five tracks as well as morning and lunch keynote speakers. Continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks provided. 7 CPE.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is everywhere, even in places we don’t expect. We will explore generative artwork, digital assistants, automated license plate readers, and smart home devices with a deep dive into how companies utilize AI by extracting personal data and impact our everyday lives. We will analyze these technologies and review some unintended consequences and privacy harms like economic loss, social stigmatization, loss of autonomy, and discrimination that can be caused without careful implementation. We will discuss the integration of AI into your tech stack and engagement with 3rd party service to perform tasks for you (contracts, cookies, data retention, data subject rights, and more.)
