Access Partnership’s Head of Data Policy and Trust Laura Sallstrom moderated a panel on Privacy Police: Polarised Approaches to Global Data on 9 March 2019, as part of the The South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference & Festivals. SXSW celebrates the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries and is arguably the world’s largest gathering of creative professionals.
About the panel: Privacy and data protection has emerged as the greatest regulatory challenge for the tech industry, but there are dramatically different approaches in the most important global markets. For the EU, data is something to be protected; for China, data is something to be controlled; the U.S. sees data as something to be commercialised. Fasten your seatbelt as we examine global extremes in privacy protection, what it means for Internet governance and citizen’s rights, and how global tech companies should navigate this complex landscape.
