Organizations need to look at privacy at a strategic and "almost cellular level" that is in constant motion, says Michelle Dennedy, CEO of PrivacyCode. "It's generative privacy."

In the meantime, the U.S. appears to be "losing ground" in data privacy, due in large part to the fact that there is still no national privacy law at the federal level, she says.

"The rest of the world is really picking up speed here. Almost 75% of the world is governed by a GDPR-like scheme," she said.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Dennedy also discusses:

  • Post-pandemic privacy challenges;
  • The privacy law landscape globally;
  • Evolving privacy issues involving TikTok, social media and younger users.

Dennedy is a longtime privacy advocate. She previously served as vice president and chief privacy officer at Cisco and McAfee/Intel Security.
