The Privacy Man, Myths, and Legends: Marty Abrams
Show Notes

In this week of Serious Privacy by TrustArc, K Royal and Paul Breitbarth catch up with one of the oldest and most respected names in privacy, Marty Abrams, the Executive Director and Chief Strategist of the Information Accountability Foundation. Marty has 35 years of experience as an information and consumer policy innovator. Multi-stakeholder collaboration has been a key for him in developing practical solutions to dilemmas in information policy. The IAF has among other things prepared reports on Trustworthy People Beneficial Data Activities and on Fair and Ethical Data Processing, as well as drafted model privacy legislation for countries, including the United States, around the world. 

Join us as we discuss the United Kingdom and their recent activities in law, AI, such as training data for machine learning, and legitimate interest for advertising data. The IAF responded to the call for consultation. Marty also shared his thoughts on whether the GDPR, as it currently stands, can last 20 years. Other topics include cross-border transfers of data, government transparency, and model legislation.
