Me2B 101

July 6, 2020 | 8:00am PT

Lisa has been a software professional for over 30 years, with her formative career years spent at Motorola, developing software for mobile phone infrastructure. The arc of her career moved to ever smaller organizations, culminating with start-ups and eventually entrepreneurship. Over her career, she honed her product management skills, developing particular love for industry standards development work and software usability.

Lisa currently works in a private foundation (Wrethinking, the Foundation) where her activities focus on usable technology and industry standards that put the user in control of their digital life. In October of 2018, Lisa pitched the long-germinating idea of a consumer-facing certification mark to let people know if technology is treating them with dignity. Thus, the Me2B Alliance emerged from a nine-year hibernation, and was born. Mirroring the problem scope of traditional product management, the Me2B Alliance glues multiple disciplines and existing initiatives together to help consumers make better technology choices, increasing the number of good choices through consumer demand and awareness.

Notification & Consent Through a Me2B Lens: Improving Data Privacy with a Mutual Agency Approach

March 5, 2020

The current global wave of privacy regulations is affecting the lives of many millions of online individuals, as well as the daily practices of cybersecurity and privacy professionals. Unfortunately, according to many legal experts and our own common sense, consent is broken – perhaps fundamentally. We need a better digital permissions solution, one where an individual can achieve mutual agency with service providers. Eve will discuss new research that proposes using a human-centric right-to-use license to improve our current consent challenges, and analyzes technologies seen in the wild that that point the way towards building the required solutions for more successful digital permissions.

Eve Maler (@xmlgrrl) is ForgeRock’s Interim CTO. She is a globally recognized strategist, innovator, and communicator on digital identity, security, privacy, and consent, with a focus on fostering successful ecosystems and individual empowerment. She founded and leads the User-Managed Access (UMA) standards effort and provides expert advice to forums such as Open Banking. Previously Eve co-invented the SAML and XML standards. Eve contributes to the rock ‘n’ roll outfit ZZ Auth and the Love Tokens.

CCPA Through a Me2B Lens

December 19, 2019

The CCPA – which takes effect on January 1, 2020 – is the first comprehensive consumer privacy law enacted in the United States. It creates new obligations for businesses and new rights for consumers.

But does it really get at the heart of the issues that consumers ought to be worried about when they share data with businesses and online services and platforms? This webinar will look at the key provisions of the CCPA from the perspective of the Me2B Alliance, asking what the law does – and doesn’t – do to advance consumer interests and agency in their online interactions with businesses.

Chris Savage, CIPP/US and CIPT/US, helps companies in communications and data-centric industries navigate legal and regulatory issues involving communications, privacy, and data security. For clients with immediate problems, when compromise is possible, he negotiates solutions that work. When it isn’t, he litigates – against the government or private parties, as needed. For clients who can take a longer view, Chris works with regulators and legislators to help build a legal ecosystem where clients can flourish. 

Chris brings nearly four decades of diverse experience to every client problem. He has handled issues about competitors entering established markets; technical and economic aspects of network interconnection; deployment of new technology and infrastructure; data security and privacy; and complex issues of cost allocation, financial accounting, and contract interpretation.
