We have all heard the statement: "Privacy is dead; the Internet killed privacy; Get over it!".
However, recently, Privacy concerns have been grabbing headlines:
Is the tide turning? How do we prepare for GDPR? Is this the first sign of a different future?
At our next CTO Roundtable from on Friday, April 27, 2018 from 8 to 10 AM we will discuss “Responding to GDPR and preparing for what comes next!”. We have invited two presenters to lead the discussion and the agenda is as follows
8 AM: Breakfast and Networking
8:20 AM: GDPR: What You Should Know and Start Doing Now, led by Justin Justin Antonipillai, CEO, WireWheel.io
8:50 AM: GDPR: Seeds of a Different Future?, led by Dr. Amy Zalman, Global Security Futurist and Founder, Strategic Narrative Institute
GDPR: What You Should Know and Start Doing Now
Justin will help you learn more about how the GDPR will affect your business, what you need to know, and major phases and activities you’ll want to prepare for compliance, all in the broader context of Enterprise Date Protection Compliance.
GDPR: Seeds of a Different Future?
Amy will help us evaluate if GDPR contains potential seeds of deep global changes afoot, and of the emerging contests between nation-states, corporations and citizens/ consumers for relative power over their own destinies. With its blanket stipulation that all firms—regardless of their territorial headquarters or location—are responsible for protecting EU residents’ private data, the EU Parliament acknowledges how deeply globalization and technology have eroded the meaning of territorial boundaries accepted since the Treaty of Westphalia, and shifted sovereign power into the hands of individuals themselves.
Amy will propose that current trends in technology regulation, including the GDPR, net neutrality and emerging areas such as wearables and HIPAA, reflect the early stage of paradigmatic shifts in how our world may be organized in the centuries to come.

He also led similar digital trade issues in Asia, and domestic privacy issues in the US. For the prior decade, Justin was a partner in the private equity practice of Arnold & Porter LLP. In 2016, Director James Clapper recognized Justin with the National Intelligence Medallion.
