Huawei Technologies USA And Financial Times To Develop Data Sovereignty Solutions – PRNewswire

PLANO, Texas, June 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Huawei Technologies USA, in partnership with Financial Times, will bring together experts for a webinar titled: “How Should Privacy Considerations Be Addressed Given Data’s Emerging Status as a Tradable Commodity?” to discuss how data is collected, controlled and processed across borders. Panelists include Andy Purdy, Chief Security Officer at Huawei Technologies USA, Lothar Determann, Partner at Baker McKenzie, Rachel Nico, Global Director of Privacy Legal and the Group Counsel for Information Technology at Intel and Caitlin Fennessy, Research Director at International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). The conversation, moderated by Hannah Murphy, Tech Correspondent at Financial Times, will begin at 12:30 p.m. ET on June 23, and can be registered for here.

From sweeping executive orders to high-profile social media hearings, the past years have seen churn in the world of data privacy. As control over our data becomes increasingly prevalent in the digital era, leaders are faced with creating rules and regulations regarding the protection of personal information. Governments must determine policies that dictate how and when data moves across borders, the impact of privacy-enhancing technology and the overall role data laws play in spurring or suppressing technology and innovation.

This webinar will discuss the implications of data sovereignty on global trade and regulations, delving into necessary policy changes, as well as the global opportunity that comes with standardizing compliance laws. Individual national policies on data have both privacy and trade implications, which present significant challenges for global companies operating across borders. There are two critical dimensions to this discussion. The first focuses on what data sovereignty means for trade flows, and the second is how data localization laws are shaping up in different countries. Experts will dive into these key issues and more, discussing comprehensive strategies that balance trust and safety.
