The iappANZ summit to be held in Sydney early next month will be looking at the line between entertainment, art and the invasion of privacy, the organisers said in a release publicising the conference.

iappANZ 2017 Summit – 3 & 4 October 2017
Privacy & Personalisation – Walking The Line

Where is the line between entertainment, art, documentary filmmaking and the invasion of privacy?

How do we unlock the power of Big Data whilst preserving our privacy and what are the merits and limitations of de-identification?

These are some of the challenges faced by the privacy industry and current topics being explored at the International Association for Privacy Professionals ANZ (iappANZ) annual Summit on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 October 2017 in Sydney.

Now in its tenth year, the iappANZ Summit is the pre-eminent forum for privacy professionals and anyone with an interest in the current landscape and future of privacy – bringing globally recognised specialists and industry leaders together with creative thinkers, policy makers and practitioners.

“In an industry that changes rapidly, it is important that we are at the forefront of the broader discussions concerning privacy,” said Kate Monckton, President, iappANZ.

“We are delighted with the high caliber of speakers for our summit this year offering fresh new insights and expertise to our delegates.”

Privacy and the compliance processes which protect information can get a bad wrap in this era of digital innovation, where businesses want to extract full value from data. This Summit offers attendees insights into what their clients want and how to help businesses navigate the requirements in a way that helps them to build trust and achieve the commercial outcomes they are seeking.

Speaker highlights on Day One of the Summit include:

  • Anthony van der Meer, a young Dutch documentary filmmaking sensation, who turned his stolen mobile phone into a surveillance camera and spied on the thief,
  • Eduardo Ustaran, ground breaking author and data protection law expert, enlightening us as to the reality of new global privacy laws and GDPR developments,
  • Dame Diane Robertson, social sector entrepreneur, exploring how we can unlock and use valuable data whilst preserving privacy
  • Craig Templeton, senior security expert, who will discuss the often neglected aspect of privacy – ‘the human factor’ and why he hijacked Privacy Awareness Week to win hearts, not minds.

Panel speakers include: Anna Johnson, Director Salinger Privacy, Annabel Fordham, Privacy Lawyer & Public Affairs Manager, Office of the Privacy Commissioner, New Zealand, Anne-Marie Allgrove, Partner, Baker&McKenzie, Geof Heydon, Principle, Haydon Consulting, Jodie Sangster, CEO, Association for Data Driven Marketing & Advertising (ADMA), Linden Dawson, Digital Transformation & Business Strategist and Stephen Hardy, Leader Confidential Computing and N1 Analytics, CSIRO’s Data61.

Day Two will see CEO and Security ‘Cat Herder’ for SafeStack, Laura Bell lead an interactive workshop, offering increased knowledge and understanding of what it means to consider privacy from a ‘security’ perspective.

The workshop includes a breach case study to highlight the effective relationship between security and privacy practitioners – how to bridge the gap and work collaboratively. Australian News Presenter and Journalist, Tracey Spicer will MC the Day One program along with presentations from Timothy Pilgrim, Australian Privacy Commissioner and John Edwards, New Zealand Privacy Commissioner (via video link).
