If you've heard of Privacy Engineering, you know it is rising rapidly in relevance, but in my opinion, it's not truly defined yet. It's 2020, the CCPA is in effect, and with surveillance, IoT, drones, facial and other biometric recognition, cryptocurrencies and increased regulation, it's going to be a pivotal decade for tech. Early last year, the concept of Privacy Engineering started gathering traction, entering the Gartner glossary, and being pushed by industry groups like the IAPP. It's an interesting area to understand, because it's a problem not yet fully solved, and relevant to us all.
