Ed TALKS Brings Together Leading Experts on Privacy


WILMINGTON, MA. – May 10, 2021, – Security Innovation, an authority in software security assessment and training, announced that its upcoming Ed TALKS on May 13th will discuss privacy and security in the context of new laws and today’s digital landscape. Three industry experts will gather with CEO Ed Adams to discuss the organizational impacts of privacy, compliance, and the difference between data security and data privacy.

Featured speakers include:

  • Erika Fisher, Chief Administrative Officer & General Counsel, Atlassian
  • Larry Ponemon, Chairman, Ponemon Institute
  • Elena Elkina, Partner / Privacy & Data Protection Management Executive, Aleada Consulting

While GDPR got companies scrambling to address their privacy practices, recent legislation like CCPA and the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act set the trajectory for consumers to maintain greater control of their data.  The continued growth of IoT, AI, and other data-driven technologies will force organizations to rethink their data privacy and security programs.

Today, as companies grapple with massive digital privacy weaknesses, concerned consumers feel powerless. A 2020 research study from the Ponemon Institute found that 68% of consumers are more concerned about the privacy and security of their personal information than they were three years ago.

This panel of experts will discuss the intersection of digital privacy, corporate responsibility, government regulation, and consumer concerns. “Despite increasing attention in the cybersecurity industry over the past few years, privacy threats are constantly increasing and evolving,” said Ed Adams, CEO of Security Innovation and host of Ed TALKS. “It is critical for organizations to have a strategic focus on strengthening their security posture around privacy or face the risk of financial and reputational damage that even a simple breach could cause.”
