Recorded July 24, 2020 | December.11.2020

In our fourth episode, Heather Egan Sussman talks with Peter Lefkowitz, Chief Privacy & Digital Risk Officer at Citrix. Together, they discuss a path for the United States (U.S.) to expand its focus beyond topical privacy issues, including social media, and place healthcare and financial services in the spotlight too. Heather and Peter also cover the rush to pass narrow privacy laws and how a GDPR-like approach to a federal privacy law may benefit the U.S. moving forward.
