In this episode of Serious Privacy, K Royal and Paul Breitbarth provide an update on recent happenings in both Europe and the US, some of which are surprising and the other makes no waves across the ocean.

First, an unexpected agreement on the ePrivacy Regulation by the EU Members States. This does not mean that the regulation is passed - on the contrary, the Parliament and the European Commission are nearly at polar opposites. They...

In this episode of Serious Privacy, K Royal is joined by guest co-host Ralph O’Brien to speak about what one privacy professional did with his free time over the pandemic. Most of us may have started a new hobby - so did Jeff Jockisch, founder and CEO of PrivacyPlan.

On 17 November 2020, the Canadian Minister of Information Science and Economic Development, Navdeep Bains, introduced bill C-11, the long-awaited update to the federal Canadian privacy legislation. For many years, this legislative update had been rumoured, and now that it was finally put on the table, we can see some sweeping changes. The Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020, which includes the Consumer Privacy Protection Act, ...

Since the Schrems-II judgment came down on July 16th, the message has slowly sunk in that Europe is serious about looking at privacy and data protection through the glasses of fundamental rights protection. That was even reinforced by the Privacy International and Quadrature du Net cases, published at the start of October. Any interference with the fundamental rights to privacy and data protection, needs to be limited in time, scop...

Technology brings new demands for compliance, especially given the amount of personal data collected through various means and how it is both used and combined. However, technology can also be used to assist compliance professionals by providing the necessary information quickly.  In most of the Serious Privacy  episodes, co-hosts Paul Breibarth and K Royal have discussed one or more specific data protection and privacy related top...

Privacy and data protection are not just a job for lawyers or professionals who specialize in privacy - not anymore. Technology plays an important role in ensuring personal data can remain private. Ensuring that personal data is secure but useful requires a level of skill found in data scientists.

In this episode of Serious Privacy, Paul Breitbarth and K Royal searched for just such a skilled individual,Katharine Jarmul, the Head of...

Election day in the United States is quite the dramatic event in 2020. We may soon know who will be the President of the United States in the coming years, what the new U.S. Congress will look like, if there might be a chance of federal privacy legislation and an EU-U.S. adequacy deal passing in the coming years,  and if California Proposition 24 (the California Privacy Rights Act or “CPRA”) has made the grade. But the election pro...

Technology around the world changes quickly - fast and furiously. Unique companies solving problems we did not realize we had are hitting the market. For example, the development of always connected mobile devices has fundamentally changed the global banking system. Where before in many parts of the world people were devoid of having a bank account, nowadays a smartphone gives them access to financial services wherever they are wit...

Putting the evils back in Pandora’s box just doesn’t seem possible - much like reclaiming privacy in today’s datacentric world. This week, Paul Breitbarth and K Royal hosted Rob Shavell, CEO and founder of Abine (rhymes with hey mine) to discuss consumer privacy controls related to online privacy. Just over a decade ago, the World Wide Web consortium (W3C) started the development of a Do Not Track (DNT) standard, that would limit t...

Events happen occasionally that reinforce each other in such a way that the sum of things is worse than you could ever have imagined: a perfect storm. You may very well say that 2020 is a perfect storm in itself. And who knows what November and December may bring. This week, Paul Breitbarth and K Royal invited Stuart N. Brotman, author of Privacy's Perfect Storm: Digital Policy for Post-Pandemic Times.

Brotman took the notion of...

Wicked problems are those without simple answers. They are thorny, complex, multi-faceted issues. This episode of Serious Privacy by Paul Breitbarth and K Royal was pre-billed on social media as “talking anarchy” and “Serious Privacy-ing.”  In this episode, guests include Uber CPO and frustrated comedian Ruby Zefo, Godmother of Privacy Engineering Michelle Dennedy, and TrustArc’s General Counsel Hilary Wandall.  Given the breadth a...

If 2020 was not bad enough already, we lost Ruth Bader Ginsburg on September 18, 2020. She was admired by many lawyers and legal scholars, not just in the United States - she was a legal giant, and a great advocate for equality for all. Paul Breitbarth and K Royal discuss the impact Justice Ginsburg had on the legal field and how she inspired respect and devotion.  Our homage goes beyond her legal decisions to remember her as the i...
