Informative and Inspiring in 2017

The 2017 Privacy Bar Section Forum was a hit, following in the footsteps of its successful inaugural year.

IAPP president and CEO J. Trevor Hughes, CIPP, and founding Privacy Bar Section chair Christopher Wolf welcomed an esteemed group of peers and colleagues for an informative gathering of the minds. Members heard from keynote speaker Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen and a distinguished panel of legal and privacy experts who discussed such topics as the past and future of the privacy profession for lawyers, how to make the regulatory process less painful, how state attorneys general might approach privacy regulation under a Trump administration, and much more.
