Description:

Mind the Gap is back, and this month, we’re talking about inclusive data collection.

Inclusive data collection means educating users on how their information is harvested, how to protect their information, and accurately surveying communities to ensure that economic opportunities, products, and services are marketed equitably across diverse populations.

Join us for a discussion around inclusive data collection strategies in an environment increasingly connected by emerging mediums like 5G, and explore what opportunities are unlocked when data is collected with user privacy and inclusivity in mind.


We are dedicated to providing an accessible environment for all attendees. Please let us know if you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in the conversation by October 20th. We will do our best to meet your request. For any questions please email: events@alley.com

Meet The Panelists:
Elena Elkina
Elena Elkina
Privacy and Data Protection Management Executive
Aleada Consulting

For Elena Elkina, privacy hits close to home. Her childhood experiences in the Soviet Union morphed into a driving need to safeguard privacy of businesses and individuals, especially those who are unaware of their own risk and vulnerability. The city Elkina grew up in was literally a secret — it was not on the map. Largely populated with government-chosen software engineers, like her parents, city residents were under constant surveillance. Because of the lack of privacy and restricted freedom (a special passport was required to leave the city), and relentlessly curious about the “outside,” 12-year-old Elkina decided to become a lawyer when she grew up “to save the world.” Years later, with a law degree in hand, Elkina landed a job at a Los Angeles bank managing data protection, privacy, compliance and identity theft just as online banking began to emerge. Elkina then shifted her interest to healthcare while pursuing an American law degree at Berkeley, where she had the good fortune to study with eminent information privacy law authority Chris Jay Hoofnagle. Hoofnagle and Elkina’s boss at McKesson, who recognized Elkina’s constant need to be challenged, inspired her to start her own privacy consultancy, Aleada.

Over the past decade, Elena has focused on creating enterprise-level global (i.e., European Union, Asia Pacific, Canada) privacy and data protection programs, including developing and implementing regulatory frameworks, risk/gap assessments, maturity models, long-term roadmaps, and data protection policies; designing and employing de-identification and Privacy by Design data handling processes; reviewing products to assess digital marketing compliance; and building privacy and security training and awareness programs. She has worked closely with development and business teams to build cloud, web, and mobile consumer and business products across the globe. Elena also served as a subject matter expert for global companies that were subject to privacy related regulatory enforcement actions, including consent decrees and cease and desist orders.
