The first edition of the Data Privacy Conference was held between 23 and 29 April 2021.

The conference featured talks and discussions around:

  1. Processes for doing compliance and building privacy features in large and growing organizations.
  2. Case studies of compliance, mainly GDPR and related practices of data anonymization and data deletion.
  3. Using technology to handle processes for handling Personally Identifiable Information (PII); evaluation of developer tools that organizations use for governing access to PII and sensitive data - and whether to build, rent or buy these.
  4. End-to-end encryption - technology and policy debates; practical applications.
  5. Privacy preserving practices in consumer technology - netbanking and Android and mobile.
  6. Cloud security practices; multi-geography compliance with cloud.

Speakers from LinkedIn, Whatsapp, Hotstar, Mozilla, Zerodha, ThoughtWorks, Appsecco, Gojek and other organizations shared their experiences, and demonstrated how the combination of ‘intent, process, resources and technology’ come together to help companies build privacy-respecting products.

Closing keynote: Is NetworkOps Dead in the Age of Cloud?

Submitted Apr 14, 2021

It’s been said that the number of clues remains constant even as some field of expertise expands. This may sometimes be the outgoing generation accusing the incoming generation of being soft or lazy, and indeed it has also been said that progress in most fields occurs one obituary at a time. What we know for certain is that skills for which demand is not growing, become less common. Maybe some managers and some investors like to avoid the cost of network operators and so the fact that the cloud does not ask its customers to operate physical routers or switches or servers seems like a good thing. We also know that all magic comes at a cost, and in this case the low demand for network operations skills in one generation has led to a reduced understanding in the next generation of how distributed systems actually function. What does this do to the competitive position of nations and companies and technologists, and how shall we make ready now that it has become inevitable?
