Relentlessly Practical, Operationally Focused Breakout Sessions


Digital Identity is the Wizard Behind the Curtain

Digital identity is the financial industry’s key to an Emerald City laden with profitable new services. But it faces a long journey down the Yellow Brick Road before it’s accepted, and it will need help from the “Good Witch” — privacy — to get there. In the breakout session “Be the Wiz at Digital Identity in Financial Technology,” a panel of industry experts will share strategies and real-life examples to help organizations “ease on down the road” to working digital identity into product development. No silver or ruby slippers required.


Delete That Data Before It Goes Dark

If you think hitting the “delete” button is hard, try having your data go “dark” and regressing from asset to liability. Learn how to make friends with the delete key at the panel “Delete: The Button No One Wants to Press.” Panelists will describe how to visualize data, extrapolate value, and mitigate risk so you’ll know when it should stay and when it should go.


What Would You Do? Match Wits With All-Star Privacy Professionals

Put yourself in the shoes of a global data protection officer (DPO) and chief information security officer (CISO) at this interactive session. Experts from GSK, T Rowe Price and PA Consulting will challenge you to make the kinds of decisions DPOs make every day. You’ll have to balance commercial and personal pressures as you try to build trust with customers. Get it wrong and you’ll find out how privacy issues can end an organization’s future. Using live polling, attendees will be asked to respond to three situations before the panel of experts leads a discussion on the real-world impact.
