It's My Data

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Worried about giving away all your personal data in exchange for services and products? Do you want greater control over who uses your data, for what purpose, and for how long? Are you vulnerable to misuse or fraudulent use of your data? Do you want to wrest back agency over your privacy? Join our co-design workshop to design a new international Privacy Preference Standard.

Canada and the EU have proposed a privacy preference standard to the International Standards Organization. Five other countries are supporting this effort. This would allow you to assert your preferences regarding the use of your private data. The standard would be referenced in privacy regulations. It would replace the all-or-nothing service agreements that we currently sign --- because the fine print is too daunting, or we need the service and are given no choice.

You will help the project editor for the standard, Jutta Treviranus, and her team, draft the preferences that should be included in the standard. Collaborate in making the preference choices understandable, especially to people that are more vulnerable to misuse of their personal information. Contribute to drafting the policies that should guide the negotiation between the customer and the service.

This is a participatory co-design session. You will help shape a new international standard and regulated practice. After all, it's your data!
