Hello and welcome to module for the summary
It's gonna be a little more light and we're going to wrap up this course, We've covered a lot.
So in this module we're going to talk about the future of privacy.
We're also going to chat about the course as a whole and and last will have some parting thoughts.
So the module 4.1 future of privacy.
Well, we're going to explore the possible future of privacy and review how the possible future could impact our privacy program
before we look at in the future, we got to look in the past.
The right to privacy is an article written
The Harvard Law Review Back in the 1890s
by Louis BRANDEIS and Samuel Warren.
These gentlemen mostly louis BRANDEIS, according to the
uh history wrote most of the article, but they certainly had a vision on on what privacy meant
two individuals or what it should mean to individuals and
and what we as individuals should expect from organizations and governments and governments in regard to
keeping our lives private.
Well, fast forward to today and into the future. Uh we certainly have a lot of elements here to consider moving forward in regard to in regard to privacy? Well, the upper left hand corner, uh it's difficult to fight an image for artificial intelligence or machine learning.
So we've got that wonderful robotic.
Uh being up there with a three piece suit looks like a nice suit
that I believe AI is certainly going to play a significant role in making decisions for human beings as it pertains to privacy. And there's gonna be some potential pitfalls with that for those of you who are aware of machine learning and artificial intelligence that yes, there are certainly some benefits, but there are some downsides as well.
So I think if we're gonna incorporate AI and machine learning into our decision making processes into our programs, we need to really understand what those systems do and what type of authority they have and ultimately what type of responsibility we're giving them or we're transferring to those systems.
Uh You know, I'm not a practicing attorney by any means, but I'm not a judge, so I'm not sure what type of judgments exist out there in regard to two systems or organizations pointing the finger to the machine. Did it not us where that responsibility is going to follow the machine? Last I checked machines don't have currency and they don't have bank accounts to pay
fine. So it's going to fall to organizations
to to shoulder that responsibility.
We may also see a pandemic in the upper hand corner. We see more and more
people being concerned about covid 19 as they should be. Uh And uh are there potential future pandemics that could change uh the privacy landscape And for those of you who know about privacy and how some of the laws work during a pandemic? A lot of the restrictions on privacy
are removed for patient care to help keep the
the population safe. If there is an ongoing threat of a pandemic, we may see that being a restriction to some of the more onerous and some of the more restrictive privacy laws that are out there.
Government lower left hand corner there,
depending on the culture of the government parts of the world, we've seen where there's definitely strive to have individual privacy and others where it's not whether they chose not to or whether it's just not part of their maturity process that the country is is not as mature as others. So
government certainly will play a role in how much privacy legislation is
is reviewed and passed into law. And
uh certainly will impact our programs moving forward. And I believe we're trending in the direction borrowing any uh
distractions that can impact that we're trending in that direction right now. War uh you know, could certainly awards could certainly impact our privacy programs much like pandemic one could argue that during wartime, uh the the
the restrictions around privacy could be lessened uh to protect the population. So that's another consideration. And then all the lower right hand corner we've got tech, whether it's devices or its software companies are collecting a significant amount of data
about individuals. And that data is flying all over the interweb or the dark web. So we may see a proliferation continue with that practice. And and and may or may not see continuing attempts by governments uh to to lock down uh those organizations or to really control the data flow
personal information.
Um, hackers can certainly impact the future of what we do. If it's deemed that a lot of information that's out there just continues to be taken and individuals lives are impacted negatively. We could see a whole lot of change in how information is used
and what is accepted by organizations for individuals,
uh, and on the right hand side, you know, maybe all this is for not because aliens are gonna come and they already know about us anyway. So I put that up there just to break it up a little bit for you folks. Uh, I have
Not heard of any alien invasions occurring in 2020, nor do I believe we would, but it's been quite a year. I certainly think that it's not something we should take off the table by any means.
But yes, I think that would certainly impact if that occurred, that would certainly impact. But I think arguably out of the items we talked about, a possible future uh impacts on our privacy program. Alien innovation, uh knock on wood is the least likely to occur.
What I think that's important for us from the future standpoint is that privacy is here to stay and as these laws continue to get past and become more expanded, even if there is a triggering event that requires a loosening of of privacy rights during an event
that still has to be managed.
So you're going to see a lot more opportunity uh in the privacy landscape. So if you're if you're watching this course and you're already in privacy, what fantastic. If you're looking to get into privacy, I think you're in the right place. Uh we're trending up in this space and we're going to need a lot more hands on and a lot more minds
uh from from all the stakeholders involved to tackle these privacy challenges uh from a from a management perspective on down.
So what we learn in this module, we discussed the possible future of privacy or futures, and we reviewed how the future of privacy
could impact our privacy programs.
