It goes without saying 2020 has been a challenging and difficult year. COVID-19 has affected the world in inalterable ways. And though the pandemic is a sea change for how we live, work and educate our children, it did not lessen the impact of privacy and the privacy profession. In fact, privacy has become an even more front-and-center issue for businesses, governments and individuals. From the “Schrems II” decision in the EU to Proposition 24 in California to new and proposed laws in Brazil, Canada, China and India, there was no shortage of developments in the privacy space. To help assess what just happened in 2020 and what’s ahead in 2021, IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP, spoke with IAPP VP and Chief Knowledge Officer Omer Tene and Research Director Caitlin Fennessy, CIPP.
