Privacy and technology can achieve big things together. IAPP Privacy. Security. Risk. 2022 is the place to learn how.

P.S.R. focuses on the intersection of privacy and technology. The 2022 program is packed with a wide variety of sessions and workshops on integrating privacy into technology product, service and system development. Topics include eliminating bias in artificial intelligence; selling privacy as an asset; working with location data; applying the NIST framework, and much more. Led by privacy and security professionals with decades of experience, workshops and breakout sessions yield practical guidance you will be able to put to work immediately. P.S.R. also offers a full program of large and small networking events and meet-ups for connecting with other privacy, security and tech professionals.
