Brisbane Branch Meeting
Join us for our Brisbane Branch event


IoT for Smart Cities - enhancing the visibility of Privacy to achieve secure, balanced and trusted outcomes

The ability to collect personal information – and to store it, do things with it, share it with or sell it to others - imposes an obligation on vendors, data storage providers, industry champions, public policy makers, municipalities, data brokers and others with involvement in the supply and deployment of IoT devices. In addition to the requirement to protect personal information in accordance with the law, there is a responsibility, a duty, to handle it in a way that is fair and within the reasonable expectation of the person to whom it relates.

Failing to embrace this duty – failing to promote privacy accountability within your part of the IoT eco-system – will undermine community trust and, likely, the success of whatever your initiative is.

Speaker: Nicole Stephensen, Ground Up Consulting
Nicole Stephensen is Principal Consultant at Ground Up Consulting, a boutique firm she established in 2011. There, she provides capacity building and privacy by design services across government, private and not for profit sectors. Nicole is also the Executive Director for Privacy and Data Protection at the Internet of Things Security Institute (a pro bono position). She is co-author of the IoTSI Security Framework for Smart Cities and Critical Infrastructure and hosts a bi-weekly podcast, Privacy Matters.

In her nearly 20 years in the privacy profession, Nicole notably provided comprehensive drafting instructions on the structure, content and policy imperatives for Queensland’s first privacy law, the Information Privacy Act 2009. This law replaced the State’s previous administrative privacy regime which, from 2005-2007, Nicole had responsibility for implementing at a whole-of-government level. She began her career in Canada, with roles in privacy, freedom of information and information policy. 

Nicole is a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), and hosts the IAPP’s KnowledgeNet Chapter for Queensland. Prior to its incorporation into the larger IAPP in 2019, Nicole was also a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals ANZ Chapter (iappANZ) where she sat for three consecutive terms on the Board.

Nicole additionally volunteers her time to:  the international peer-review panel for the Secure Controls Framework (SCF), a US-based high-level privacy- and security-by-design framework created by industry experts and offered under creative commons; and, the Advisory Board for the Joe Alhadeff Digital Policy Centre (currently being constructed on Prince Edward Island, Canada), which is focused on issues of digital policy affecting children and young people, such as cyber-bullying, image based abuse and child exploitation.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker at the end of the presentation.

Light refreshments will be served after the presentation.
