Today’s data governance approach is under debate around the world. Different business models rely on varying degrees of data collection, aggregation, storage, and monetization. These vast data stores have also inevitably become a target for individuals and organizations seeking to carry out malign acts. Malicious actors are constantly challenging this data’s security, and successful breaches have already exposed the personal information of millions of people. As a result, users are losing confidence in the ecosystem, and governments around the world are considering regulation. Our panel will review the types of collected data that are targeted by malign actors, the fall-out from and implications for privacy of past successful breaches that compromised the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of data, and assess new frameworks for consumer privacy.
