Keep Pace With Privacy

Welcome to the 2021 Summit season. The flagship event in global data protection delivers its 19th annual conference straight to you online, à la carte, and free to IAPP members. This year’s Summit menu lets you keep pace with privacy – at your own pace. No need to cram hours of screen time into a few long days. Convenient access and timing put you in control of your schedule, so you do not have to miss anything.

As a privacy professional, you not only need to keep up with the latest in your field, you need to connect with your community, benchmark with peers and discover the critical developments that could make or break your privacy program. The IAPP Global Privacy Summit Online 2021 provides exactly that over more than two months and 70-plus live presentations, interactive networking events and on-demand recordings.
