Privacy, Please!

If you plan to be in Brussels this November and are interested in taking a deep dive into issues surrounding the governance of piracy, you should attend the IAPP Europe Data Protection Congress 2014. One of the highlights of the event (in our humble opinion) will be a chance to hear Intertrust’s own Knox Carey discuss privacy and genetic data in the cloud. Knox will be speaking in the Privacy and Technology breakout session on Thursday, November 20th from 10:30-11:30 am. He will speak about “Preserving Privacy for Genetic Data in the Cloud”.

Registration is now open for the IAPP Europe Data Protection Congress 2014 being held in Brussels from November 18th to 20th,  2014. Focusing on privacy and governance issues surround the topic, the Data Protection Congress promises to be a fascinating and exciting event bringing together policy leaders with business and technology professionals. Keynote speakers include Luca De Matteis, Justice Counsellor (Cooperation in Criminal Matters and Data Protection), Permanent Representation of Italy to the EU, Julie Brill, Commissioner with the US Federal Trade Commission and Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer at F-Secure.

Knox Carey is the Vice President of Technology Initiatives at Intertrust. He leads Intertrust’s Genecloud initiative, which strives to make sensitive genetic data and health information accessible to responsible parties who solve difficult health problems while respecting privacy and legal frameworks.
