Privacy in a Time of Rich Telemetry

Add to calendar

Most modern testing, especially in a DevOps model, uses a lot of telemetry to evaluate and monitor quality of experience for apps and services. In this interconnected world, there is power and risk in data. Ken Johnston will share his personal experiences dealing with US and European Union privacy regulations and the methods he and his team have implemented to mitigate the potential of significant penalties for the misuse of data. He will cover privacy-preserving techniques such as differential privacy and private enclave, what constitutes primary versus secondary uses of data, and how you should handle personally identifiable information (PII). You'll leave with a better understanding of how to keep data private and secured, as well as how to keep your team adhering to privacy best practices and regulations.
