Privacy Engineering: Navigating the data classification maze

The heavily cross-dependent nature of privacy requires a holistic privacy engineering strategy based on data mapping, data classification and data inventory to quantify privacy risks, build and enforce automated controls and support privacy-compliant workflows in an interconnected tech ecosystem. This session will focus on data classification and will discuss different classification schemes and approaches to data segmentation, as well as strategies to tackle unstructured data, collaborate on data handling with internal stakeholders, explore access options and learn how to kick off and maintain the data classification process. Panelists will share challenges they have encountered in their data governance journey and how they addressed them, whether by using comprehensive tools available on the market or by developing in-house solutions. After the main panel, registrants are invited to share their experiences and approaches in small working groups under Chatham House rules. Bring questions, share experiences and contribute to the growing privacy engineering community in the Bay Area!
