The World’s Most Prestigious Privacy Conference Had its Best Event Ever
Over 4,000 attendees made their way to Washington, D.C. for the first return of the IAPP Global Privacy Summit since 2019. They enjoyed four days of highly anticipated networking and privacy education, where critical topics such as privacy in technology, cross-border data flow, the future of third-party cookies and the prospect of a U.S. national privacy law were discussed. Through many breakout and active learning sessions, they were exposed to the latest groundbreaking developments in privacy and data protection and discovered new solutions and best practices to implement into their own privacy operations.
IAPP’s best Summit yet kicked off a night early on Monday, April 11 with an Opening General Session featuring bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell; Amy Gajda, author of “Seek and Hide” and Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, Lina M. Khan in her first public address.
The next day’s general session made national news when Apple’s CEO Tim Cook took the stage to discuss why “protecting privacy is one of the most essential battles of our time.” His headline keynote address was followed by Zahra Mosawi, the former Commissioner of Access to Information Commission of Afghanistan. Mosawi spoke about her experience working to establish freedom of expression and information rights for the Afghan people. European Commissioner of Justice Didier Reynders finished the morning’s session discussing his work promoting Europe’s fundamental right to personal data protection in his pre-recorded address.
On the final day of Summit 2022, Microsoft President and Vice Chair Brad Smith shared his perspective on the responsibilities the tech sector must adopt plus the role of governments in keeping pace with challenges created by emerging technologies in the Closing General Session. While historian and award-winning filmmaker David Olusoga presented his research on 19th century epidemiological history and the fascinating origins of when data was first used to extend life. To close the session, The Markup Editor-in-Chief and founder Julia Angwin and The New York Times National Technology Correspondent Cecilia Kang came together for a keynote panel moderated by Koch Distinguished Professor in Law at Washington University, Neil Richards. The two top journalists reporting on technology shared their unique perspectives on data privacy stories that are making headlines today.
Each inspirational keynote session set the tone for the rest of the day’s incredible sessions. See below for more details on the most recent Summit gathering.
