2023 event highlights

Every year the Summit gets bigger and better, and the IAPP’s Summit 2023 was no exception. This highly anticipated, four-day event attracted five thousand professionals from all over the globe to connect and learn about the latest developments in privacy and data protection. Attendees benefitted from exceptional session content, networking opportunities, and were left informed and inspired by the extensive list of high-profile speakers who joined the D.C. conference

From keynote addresses to breakout sessions and a workshop, artificial intelligence was top of mind this year and was explored through many lenses and perspectives. Experts discussed the intersection of AI and civil rights and attendees heard about developments happening around the world, including Italy’s ban on ChatGPT and the European Union’s ambitious intent to launch the AI Act by early 2024. On the national front, discussions revolved around federal and state legislation updates. Representatives from the California Privacy Protection Agency stressed compliance, updated participants on recent violations and the evolution of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Those who came to Summit 2023 left with a greater sense of what is on the horizon for privacy in the coming year and beyond, and a mission from A-list celebrity Trevor Noah to, “always try to plan for a world that you may never see.”

Summit continues to be the most talked about privacy event on the year. As the space and community continues to grow, and with the U.S. on the brink on a national privacy law, be sure you are on the list to join next year’s event.
