TrustArc General Counsel and Chief Data Governance Officer Hilary Wandall Panelist at Personal Data Protection Seminar 2018

August 07, 2018

TrustArc General Counsel and Chief Data Governance Officer Hilary Wandall had the pleasure of being a panelist at this year’s Personal Data Protection Seminar on July 25th, 2018 in Singapore.  

As data-driven innovations take centerstage in today’s digital economy, responsible data governance and accountability are crucial anchors for the sustenance of a thriving data ecosystem.  The theme for this year’s Personal Data Protection (PDP) Seminar – “Powering Innovation Through Trust” – reflected the importance of these factors in building trust for innovation.

Similar to last year, this year’s event featured two panel discussions in the morning, followed by concurrent workshops in the afternoon. The panels, comprising a line-up of distinguished local and international speakers, shared their views on the importance and challenges of demonstrating accountability in data management, as well as the role of data as both an asset and enabler of technology and innovation.

Hilary contributed on Panel Session 1 – “Trust and Accountability in Data Management for Business Competitiveness.”  She was joined by fellow panelists Bojana Bellamy (Centre for Information Policy Leadership), Alison Howard (Microsoft Corporation), Lorraine Lee (International SOS), and moderator Trevor Hughes (International Association of Privacy Professionals).
