Privacy: What Security Leaders Need to Know

- Premium Members Only Content - Exclusive Video -

Where do organizations fail when defining privacy, and how can they best leverage technology to ensure privacy protection? Michelle Dennedy of McAfee and Trevor Hughes of the IAPP share perspectives.

Regulatory guidance and emerging technologies increasingly put security and privacy professionals at odds over how to define and enforce privacy for their own organizations.

In an exclusive video interview, Dennedy and Hughes discuss:

  • The increasing complexity of privacy, and why today's technology tools are no longer sufficient;
  • How to bridge organizational gaps to define and enforce privacy protections;
  • The security technologies necessary to ensure privacy in an evolving threat landscape.


For many years, privacy and security professionals have followed separate paths. But increasingly these individuals find themselves at the same intersection, discussing topics such as mobile security, authentication and compliance.

More than ever, it is necessary for organizations to define the privacy protections they offer and support - and then enforce those protections diligently.

Complicating matters is that privacy regulations are evolving rapidly throughout the world, and so are users' privacy expectations. Similarly, technology is maturing at such a pace that privacy challenges and solutions evolve just as quickly.

In this exclusive video interview, we explore privacy from two perspectives:

  • Trevor Hughes, head of the International Association of Privacy Professionals, discusses the growing complexity of privacy, and how organizations can get a better handle on it now.
  • Michelle Dennedy, Chief Privacy Officer of McAfee, tells in practical terms how privacy executives can engage with security leaders and form consensus on privacy/security issues that must be addressed.
