An increasing number of states in the U.S. are attempting to protect individuals’ personally identifiable information through legislation.  Another approach to securing personal data and ensuring data privacy is the creation of Data Trusts.  Data trusts are modeled after trusts that are used to protect other types of assets, where an independent person, group, or entity acts as a steward of the data and owes fiduciary duties to the owners of the data.

Our speakers will discuss:

  • What data trusts are (10 minutes)
  • How they could be structured (10 minutes)
  • Why many privacy experts think data trusts could increase privacy and the public’s willingness to share their personal data (10 minutes)
  • Independent boards of directors as a model for data trustees? (10 minutes)
  • The fiduciary duty standard that would be applied (10 minutes)
  • Could data trusts be a solution to biometric data privacy issues in sports? (10 minutes)
