What a stellar week! P.S.R. 2016 brought together 1,300 privacy and cloud security pros for four days of sold-out trainings, riveting presentations and engaging networking. Thought leaders from around the globe took on the many ground-breaking policy issues of 2016. We covered the full spectrum, from the big picture to the nuts and bolts, and we had a blast in the process!

Our keynotes broke the mold with schema-shifting perspective, by challenging attendees’ notions of identity and fairness, forcing each one of us to consider anew how we manage our online selves and where we set the line between public and private. Never have security and privacy seemed more topical, vital or connected.

Many thanks to our attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors for an enlightening and entertaining conference.

Cathy O’Neil

A foremost authority and thinker on the U.S. Constitution and the Supreme Court of the U.S., Rosen will explore how European ideas of the Right to be Forgotten jibe with the First Amendment and ingrained freedom of expression and the press in the U.S.

What a Sizzling Program!

Usability Drives Security

Designing a secure solution for wide adoption is non-trivial. We saw real examples from building Dropbox illustrate how usable solutions create stronger security.
