A Step-by-Step Guide to Integrating PbD at Your Organization

Libbie Canter, Associate, Covington & Burling LLP

Privacy by Design (PbD) enables an organization to incorporate privacy commitments into the development of its operations, products and services. Unlike older privacy models, which involve after-the-fact assessments, PbD begins at the planning and brainstorming stage and continues throughout the lifecycle of a product, service or business function. PbD provides numerous operational, risk management and legal benefits. But a successful PbD program requires employees throughout the organization to change how they think about privacy. This preconference workshop will provide suggestions for designing, implementing and advocating for a PbD program. The presenters have substantial experience in developing PbD programs for corporations, government agencies and non-profits, and they will draw on their experiences to provide best practices for successfully engaging in a privacy discussion at all levels of an organization. Through a collaborative exercise where you’ll work with the presenters, you’ll gain experience in developing a model PbD plan.

What you’ll take away:

  • Key elements of an effective PbD program
  • How to promote PbD throughout an organization
  • Best practices for implementing PbD
