Â Data Privacy Legal Hack-A-thon
This is an unprecedented year documenting ourÂ loss of Privacy. Never before have we needed to stand up and team up to do something about it. Â Â In honour of Privacy Day, the Legal Hackers are leading the charge to do something about it, inspiring a two-day international Data Privacy Legal Hackathon.Â This is no ordinary event. Instead of talking about creating privacy tools in theory, the Data Privacy Legal Hackathon is about action! A call to action for tech & legal innovators who want to make a difference!
We are happy to announce a Data Privacy Legal Hackathon and invite the Kantara Community to get involved and participate. Â We are involvedÂ in not only hosting Â aÂ Pre-Hackathon ProjectÂ to create a Legal Map for consent laws across jurisdictions, but the CISWG will also be posting a project for theÂ Consent Receipt ScenarioÂ that is posted in on the ISWG wiki.
The intention is to hack Open Notice with a Common Legal Map to create consent receipts that enable â€˜customisers’ to control personal informationÂ If you would like to get involved in the hackathon, show your support, or help build the consent receipt infrastructure please get involved right away — you can get intouch with Mark (dot) Lizar (at)gmail (dot) com, Hodder (at) gmail (dot) com, or join the group pages that are in links below.
