Comilion to Discuss Privacy By Design In Cyber-Threat Information Sharing At IAPP Conference

Kobi Freedman Events, Uncategorized

The IAPP Privacy Academy is teaming up once again with CSA Congress for the Privacy, Security, Risk (P.S.R.) conference.

This year, I will be participating in the conference and discussing how to implement privacy by design principles in security collaboration.

I will be joining a panel with Naomi Lefkovitz, Senior Privacy Policy Advisor at The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, and Arielle Brown, Westin Fellow at International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).

Cybersecurity Legislation

As we have discussed in previous blog posts, President Obama is currently pushing for the Cybersecutiy Information Sharing Bill to be passed by the Senate. The Bill aims to  encourage companies to share security intelligence. The challenge for such proposals in the past has been sharing information without infringing on consumer and corporate  privacy. In this panel session, I will discuss a peer-to-peer framework for data sharing using Privacy by Design principles. This approach allows organizations to share data without a central repository, use encryption to mask excessive information, and implement “relevancy based sharing” to avoid cyber security liabilities

Attendees will:

  • Learn about the president’s cybersecurity initiative and other policy documents from the EU and NIST
  • Hear about privacy enhancing tools on data sharing platforms
  • Explore technical and policy responses to privacy issues associated with  cybersecurity information sharing and collaboration between organizations


Wednesday, Sep. 30th from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
