This week’s debate comes amid a combo platter of increased analytics leading to near-immediate contact when visiting a product’s website, along with more clarity from enforcement bodies about how they will approach their respective privacy legislation. One such fine was the Sephora CCPA matter in which California Attorney General levied a $1.2M fine on the company ([https://oag.ca.gov/news/press-releases/attorney-general-bonta-announces-settlement-sephora-part-ongoing-enforcement])
Listen in to hear Dan, Brian and Erik talk about:
- Are privacy and shareholder value at odds? How does protecting the privacy of the consumer help shareholder value?
- A reminder that security and privacy can serve as a business differentiator
- How to deal with the reputation of a company being set by misleading headlines (and people not reading the actual article/detail)?
- Does better privacy practices in companies lead to reduced data for sale on the illicit market?
- Does just “saying no to data collection” by companies make for a better privacy posture?
- How long should (vs. how long do) you hold onto data?
- How will companies be judged in the future by how they manage data today?
- Are ads themselves the source of all our problems?
- Why does the push for more advertising to reduce costs increases the push for more data collection?
