Better Together: the Privacy-Technology Fusion at IAPP P.S.R. 2021

We lived through a year of trusting technology to conduct business and live life at safe distances. What effect did that dependance have on privacy and information security, and what lessons are we taking into the future? Explore those and other questions in at IAPP Privacy. Security. Risk. 2021, live in San Diego.

P.S.R. is the number-one event focused on the intersection of privacy and technology. Speakers and breakout sessions will dive deeply into maximizing technology as a privacy asset and minimizing it as a privacy threat. Join discussions of operational issues such as data breaches, scaling privacy programs, managing consent and more. Led by privacy and security professionals with decades of experience, breakout sessions yield practical guidance you will be able to put to work immediately. P.S.R. also offers world-class networking where you can connect with other privacy and infosec professionals at large events or smaller meet-ups focused on specific areas of interest.
