Informative and Inspiring in 2017

Brought to you by the Privacy Bar Section and exclusively for IAPP members, the 2017 Privacy Bar Section Forum followed 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 a distinguished group of peers and colleagues for an information-packed half-day event. 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.
