    2. Assessment requirements for new US state consumer privacy laws and California’s Age Appropriate Design Act and the practical need for assessments to meet new health data privacy law requirements
    3. Additional assessment considerations, beyond personal data issues, for AI, automated decision-making and profiling
    4. Deep dive into the draft requirements for privacy and cyber assessments under consideration published by the California Privacy Protection Agency, as well as under the recently finalized Colorado regulations
    5. Operationalizing privacy assessments supported by a target operating model
    6. The benefits and challenges when utilizing privacy assessment technology to support privacy assessments

    Join us for this informative and interactive webinar to find out how to implement a scalable privacy impact assessment process.
