A New IAPP Section for an Emerging Field

The inaugural forum of the IAPP’s new Privacy Engineering Section was a big hit—practical and engaging, with a strong, diverse attendance. Designed to engage and support the emerging field of privacy engineering, the new section’s debut event explored at length how to define the privacy engineer, the needs of the role, and what it could look like in an organization. We welcomed on-the-ground privacy engineers, students, and privacy pros from across the IAPP community, and hit the ground running with an info-packed day and valuable networking. We’re pumped!

Stay tuned—we are excited to announce more programming as the Advisory Board builds out the new section’s first year.
