Join Michelle Dennedy for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Understanding & Prioritizing Data Privacy.
(upbeat music) - This course today is for everyone. If you're an experienced practitioner, by all means, we're going to get deep on some concepts you already have heard of and understand but we're going to go deeper into architecture and framework in binding those concepts in privacy to the world of development architecture, standard setting, law, and morality.
Some of those places, you may feel like you've got a little wobble and the industry is just beginning now, so by all means dive in. If you're just getting started in privacy, you don't need a law degree to understand what's going to happen. You don't need an MBA, maybe you cam from marketing, maybe you're an IT specialist who wants to know more about data that's going in to all these cool containers that you're building. Maybe you are an HR specialist. I am the worst culprit of using and overusing jargons and acronyms, and I detest it when it happens to me.
Every time I've started a new tech company, they all come up with like a three letter acronym for meeting, and it drives me nuts. So throughout the course, you're going to hear jargon, it just is what it is. There are things like personally identifiable information that people know as PII. Some people use PI to cover that same acronym, some people call it personal information. You'll hear data subject again and again. The individual described by data.
You'll hear user as a euphemism for someone who is either being watched, observed, has access to, or some other interaction with the system. So I think it's really critical to understand that this is a field like any other where terms are starting to come together into industry jargon. Knowing this jargon will A, give you credibility with people leading in privacy and security. B, it'll make your visit to your lawyer cheaper because you'll understand what you're asking and what they're telling you.
And it also will help to unify the discussion between IT security, IT operations, legal, privacy, marketing, HR, gluing together all of these different specialties that all have their own jargon with a common set of terms in data protection. It's the maturing process of the entire industry, and it's very valuable as a short hand to just get things done and said more efficiently over time. (upbeat music)
