Can you always have data privacy when you’re trying to achieve data security? Join this deeply experienced trio of speakers for a lively discussion on achieving data security without sacrificing privacy through the use of privacy-enhancing technologies such as encryption and browser isolation. The panelists will address issues such as mitigating privacy risks when conducting cybersecurity investigations, authenticating users, and best practices in data management.

The sensitivity and risks of persistent location tracking has led to platform changes, legal challenges, media concerns, and a deluge of emerging privacy regulations in the United States. This panel will explore how new laws passed in California, Virginia, and Colorado, scrutiny from the Federal Trade Commission, and other emerging proposals affect commercial uses of location data.
