Paloma Llaneza is a Spanish lawyer specialized in Privacy, with impressive experience on the subject (outdated profile in El País).
For simplicity, I will just paste her Linkedin profile:
Senior partner and head of Information Technology in RAZONA and Technical Director of CERTICAR for the eIDAS Regulation scheme. Lawyer, CISA, and expert in IT law and cybersecurity.
Legal group leader of the Mobility Center and IOT at ISMS Forum.
Member of ISO, CEN, ETSI and Aenor Standardization Security working groups (information and safety).
International editor of the eIDAS Regulation scheme (EN 319 403 and EN 319 401). Member of ESI (ETSI) and technical expert of the STF 523 working group on requirements for service providers of certified electronic delivery (e-Delivery).
Founder and President of AEDEL, electronic evidence development association. She was founder and Secretary of ISACA-Madrid Chapter.
SIC 2007 Award, in recognition of her work as an ISO editor, as well as the AUTEL 2000 Award for the Dissemination of the Use of Telecommunications (individual work) for the book “Internet and Digital Communications”.
International CWA CEN Publisher on Best Practices in Data Protection, of ISO Standard of Security Metrics of Information Systems Management (ISO / IEC 27004) of the ETSI standards on certified email (Part 1 and 4), and the rules on “Long Term Preservation”.
This year she will publish the books «Security and responsibility in the Internet of things (IoT) with Wolters Kluwer, and « New services of trust and electronic identification » with Lefebvre – El Derecho. She will also present Conversations on the Roof # ConversationsLED on innovation.
Author of “Datanomics” from Editorial Deusto of Grupo Planeta (2019).
In Datanomics, she clearly explains the monster that has been created with infinite capacity to save personal data, an essential read.
The first thing I read about her was an interview in “El Confidencial” where she presented a book with a scary headline: «Delete WhatsApp, it’s the closest thing to having someone next to you reading what you think». Another article worth reading is the one published a few weeks later in El País: “It is more dangerous to have Alexa on your table than a man watching you every day in the room”.
She has her own channel on YouTube, although not regularly updated. However, another recent video can be found outside this channel, where he presents another book.
I think it is important to have her as an independent figure in this series of “who is who in Privacy” because Paloma is the most important voice in Spain alerting us of what is going on.
Recent written interview where she talks about the future of the legal profession.
Take note and pay special attention to her opinions and disclosures.
