Guest: Beverly Allen, Associate General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer, Chief Privacy Officer at Inovalon Who would have ever guessed? Nowadays, after so many years of rampant personal data sharing on websites and social media, people are starting to worry about their privacy again. Unfortunately, there is one problem: once the toothpaste is out of the tube, you cannot simply put it back in, especially in highly-technical and hyperconnected environments such as the ones we experience in modern business, government, and society. Today, the focus should be on the safety and security of the shared data that is already out of the bag; therefore, the collaboration between privacy and security professionals is of utmost importance. This, not only because the information is already relinquished and shared but also because such information creates conveniences that can span from a perfect movie or partner suggestion to an on-target advertisement, and a better cure and prevention, providing for someone's health and wellbeing. This is especially true in healthcare, where an abundance of data can make the difference between life and death. And this is when "trust and transparency" comes back on the big stage. Even with GDPR and CCPA, we still find ourselves consenting to the itty bitty print in the user agreements that are ultimately designed to "trick" us into handing over our private information to be used in ways we may not be fully aware. As individuals, we tend to think about privacy in that we don't want our personal information to become public or to be accessed by anyone not authorized to have the information. Instead, the truth is, we are placing our data in the hands of the organization whose service we sign up for and trust they won't get hacked nor maliciously share our information. Where does that leave us? Are we stuck with blind trust? Are we limited to too-late-to-the-party legislation and toothless industry standards? Or, are there methods available through which we can begin to control how our information is created, collected, stored, used, and shared? Join us for a conversation with Beverly Allen as we dig deeper into these issues. We discuss what we might do to stop companies from data harvesting and people from giving away their rights to the privacy of their personal information. Easy to do, right? No. And that's precisely why you need to listen to this conversation. ----- For more coverage from ISSA International Summit 2019, visit
