Our Squire Patton Boggs lawyers and contributors are well known for their thought leadership, here on Privacy World, as well as on other platforms and at renowned conferences and events. Two members of our team were selected to speak at the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) Global Privacy Summit in April, where over ten thousand privacy lawyers and professionals will converge in Washington, DC for the multi-day conference. This continues the tradition of speaking engagements by our team at IAPP conferences where both Kyle and Julia, as well as Alan Friel (Partner, Chair of Global Data Group), Charles Helleputte (Partner, Chair of European Data Practice), Diletta De Cicco (Counsel, Brussels), and Stephanie Faber (Of Counsel, Paris) have spoken in the past.

Kyle Fath will be moderating a panel on Building an AI Framework and Governance Program as part of the IAPP’s first ever AI Governance Certificate Training that will take place on the Active Learning Day on Monday, April 3. Joining Kyle on the panel are Christina Montgomery, Chief Privacy Officer and AI Ethics Board Chair at IBM; David Marcos, Director, Governance & Enablement, Office of Responsible AI at Microsoft; and Kristin Johnson, Associate General Counsel, AI, Privacy, and Security at Afiniti. Kyle will also be speaking on AI and automated decision-making laws and proposed legislation as part of The State of US Privacy Law session, also taking place on the Active Learning Day.

On Wednesday, April 5, Julia Jacobson will moderate a lively discussion about the growing role of privacy and ethical data use in ESG programs. Shari Pire, Chief Legal and Sustainability Officer for Plume Designs, and Seth Berman, Co-founder, CEO, Ethical Compass Advisors, will discuss how concepts familiar to privacy professionals – such as age appropriate design, privacy by design and default, data ethics – can support and inform ESG reporting.  Our panelists also will provide some tips and tactics for an ESG-friendly privacy and digital assets program.
