Webinar: Working With Privacy Agents

Many privacy laws include provisions for ‘authorized agent representatives’ who assist individuals in exercising their privacy rights. However, few understand how privacy agents work and where they fit in the privacy ecosystem. These agents can help or hinder consumers in governing the use of personal information and can affect processing costs incurred by businesses.

This webinar explores common challenges faced by all stakeholders when agents are included in privacy processes and how processes can be improved by working together. General topics include:

  • What role privacy agents play from a legal perspective

  • How privacy agent services work from the consumer’s point-of-view

  • Challenges faced by consumers and agents exercising CCPA rights

  • Pragmatic guidance for working with privacy agents
