Crowdsourcing Privacy Compliance Solutions: the Privacy Bytes Series

January 11, 2024

2023 was a busy year for privacy professionals. California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia had privacy laws come into effect, while Indiana, Iowa, Montana, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas all passed new privacy laws that will come into effect between 2024 and 2026. 

Artificial intelligence dominated the tech headlines--and also the privacy headlines. The Biden administration issued an Executive Order; the EU reached agreement on the AI Act. The FTC continued enforcing privacy rules on behalf of US citizens--including an agreement with Rite Aid banning use of AI-powered facial recognition software.  

Just keeping up with the news could be a full time job--much less figuring out the implications and applying them at one's own organization. As we often say, no one can handle it all alone. And that's why Exterro has created and continues to host the Privacy Bytes series. 

What Is Privacy Bytes?

Hosted on the third Thursday of every month, Privacy Bytes is a virtual brown-bag lunch series during which hundreds (yes, hundreds!) of privacy professionals gather to listen to privacy experts discussing some of the most pressing issues of the day. But unlike most webcasts, Privacy Bytes is unscripted and interactive. The focus is on exchanging information, sharing challenges and solutions, and empowering each other.
