Internet of Things 2015

June 17, Menlo Park



“Privacy is a game changer; it will be to organizations in 2016 what websites were to companies in 2000.” Forrester Research

But the pace of change for privacy teams is relentless. Whether it’s regulatory developments like the GDPR and the CJEU ruling on Safe Harbor, technological changes from new connected devices and data collection methods or new products and initiatives within your own business it is hard to keep your finger on the pulse. What are the top privacy risks companies need to address? How can you assess and manage these risks effectively within your organization?

The 2016 Privacy Risk Summit will bring together leading privacy practitioners, regulators, and academics to discuss key privacy risks in the year ahead and share strategies for success. The 2016 Privacy Risk Summit is hosted by TRUSTe and will be held in San Francisco on June 8 2016. The Summit builds on the success of the EU Data Protection Conference and IoT Privacy Summits to bring you an expanded program with three parallel conference tracks focusing on technological, regulatory and organisational change as drivers of privacy risk. We invite you to join us in San Francisco this summer for a packed day of inspiring keynotes, dynamic panel presentations and interactive workshops.

Get involved! There are three main ways to take part in this year’s summit – we’re looking for people to speak, sponsor and attend.

Speaker submissions will open on February 1 2016 with details available on this site; details of sponsor or partnership opportunities are available using the link below and you can book your seat today!
