January 28th is International Data Privacy Day (#DPD2013 on Twitter) and, in its celebration, we are participating in several events next week.
We kick off the week with IAPP Privacy After Hours. There’s no agenda, just show up at Jillian’s in San Francisco, from 5:00-7:00 PM. Have a good time and get to know other local privacy professionals.
Next up, in conjunction with the San Francisco Mobile Marketing Association (MMA) Forum, TRUSTe Director of Product Policy, Joanne Furtsch will host the MMA Privacy Committee meeting. The MMA Forum is a two-day event that will inform visitors on how to effectively infuse mobile into a brand’s broader marketing strategy.
TRUSTe CEO Chris Babel will participate in interactive panel discussion at the Seattle OTA Data Privacy Day Town Hall. Panel speakers include leaders in public policy, privacy, consumer protection and cybercrime law enforcement. The panel will cover innovation in privacy and impact on business.
Later in the week, stay turned for some exciting news at the San Diego DistribuTECH Conference, the energy industry’s leading smart grid conference and exposition.
We’ll wrap up the week at the San Francisco Ensighten Agility 2013 Conference, with TRUSTe Vice President of Product Kevin Trilli on the “Think Houdini: Untangling Website Privacy & Compliance” panel discussion with Executive Director & President at Online Trust Alliance (OTA) Craig Spiezle. The panel will cover website privacy and compliance and discuss: the state of privacy in the US and Europe, latest developments on “Do Not Track” and the UK Cookie Law, compliance challenges for global corporations, resolving the question of data ownership and the best practices for brands and agencies.
We hope to see you at these events. Happy Data Privacy Day! Follow these events at #DPD2013
