Deirdre Mulligan Presents at Global Privacy Summit

I School assistant professor Deirdre Mulligan is presenting her privacy research today at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit in Washington, D.C.

The Global Privacy Summit is the world's largest gathering of privacy professionals, bringing together over 1,500 privacy, security, and data protection experts from around the world.

At the conference, Mulligan joins corprorate privacy officers from the Vodaphone Group, Microsoft, and the Royal Bank of Canada to discuss “Privacy on the Ground.” The four will discuss corporations’ internal privacy structures and activities, and how they are shaped by national differences in regulation, non-governmental activity, and professionalization.

Mulligan researches information privacy and security, with an emphasis on social and organizational norms and the ways that privacy policy decisions can be embedded in — or even displaced by — the design of the technology itself.

She recently completed an exhaustive survey of how corporations actually manage privacy and what motivates them; the results of this survey were published last year in the Stanford Law Review.
