Ensuring You and Your Company are Prepared for the Age Aware Internet

PRIVO presents the Children's Digital Privacy Summit to be held during Data Privacy Week. In response to global efforts to better protect children and teens online, privacy professionals and industry leaders will discuss proposed and existing state and federal regulations, including California’s new Age-Appropriate Design Code Act. The growing number of regulations that protect children bring increased risks and liability for companies and their executives. The event will offer best practices and sessions on how companies can comply with regulatory requirements while meeting business goals, if their online services, connected products and/or experiences attract or are likely to attract children and teens.

Participants will have the option to submit questions in advance to address relevant challenges in the children’s space today and tomorrow.

**For attorneys attending, the event is eligible for CLE credits.

  • Denise Tayloe, CEO & C0-Founder, PRIVO 


Today more than ever before there is a much-needed focus on privacy protections for children and teens online. Public awareness of online harms and evidence of the exploitation of children’s data has led to an unprecedented number of new and proposed regulations at US federal and state level, in Europe and globally. What does this mean in practice for companies and privacy professionals navigating the complex landscape of regulatory requirements and aligning the different demands while providing children with valuable experiences? What lessons can we learn from past enforcement actions and what should we expect in the coming months? This session brings together leading privacy professionals to discuss and shed light on this increasingly important topic.

  • Michael Murray, Head of Regulatory Policy, ICO

Children deserve to access the latest and greatest experiences online not least for educational purposes. While AI and immersive experiences have huge potential for the next generation, they also bring a risk of harms to younger users and challenges for organizations and privacy professionals. This session will look at the possibilities versus the pitfalls and discuss how to build a privacy-enhanced experience and manage children’s engagement safely.


  • Abran Maldonado, AI Prompt Engineer / Digital Human Designer, OpenAI Ambassador, Director at 5G Edtech - NYC Media Lab
  • Josh Freeney, Senior Vice President of Digital Strategy at the Grand Rapids Public Museum and Founder, CTO, and Technology Lead of Casualware

As adults, we have a clear understanding of and vision for keeping kids safe and secure online. But what do kids themselves worry about? How do they see digital privacy, safety and security – and what do they want it to look like? Join Michael to hear from kids themselves on all things safe, sound and secure when it comes to their screen-based activities – and get a new take on how to keep them happy and healthy while online.

Building a product for teens means creating a perfect recipe (and making sure they like it!).  Grab the best minds in product engineering, content design and marketing.  Add in the right legal and regulatory stakeholders, privacy professionals and outside counsel, and be up to date on state and federal rules.  Voila!  Here is a first-hand look at the process, the bumps in the road, and finally, the launch!


  • Andra Dallas, Head of Legal Marketing, NA & Senior Counsel, PayPal

This session will look at how to provide children and teens with privacy protected experiences and at the same time meet business needs. Free to use experiences are key if children are to have equal opportunities online but organizations and companies must fund the services they build. The challenges of monetization are many in the children’s space. Many platforms and services have failed to get the balance right between providing valuable services and protecting personal data. This session looks at the pitfalls, the possibilities and use cases that show two very different approaches to succeeding.
