With massive data breaches generating headline after headline and questions about new technologies, surveillance and data collection providing fodder for countless media reports and inspiring at least one music group and novels like Lexicon and The Circle, there's been no denying that organizations and corporations alike are looking for seasoned privacy pros to join or lead their teams. With the IAPP Privacy Academy and the CSA Congress coming together for privacy and security training, education and networking opportunities in San Jose, CA, we've also put together a preconference day of not-to-be-missed workshops to help current or aspiring pros bolster their education on cutting-edge and continuing issues in privacy and security.
