Panel Discussion: The Intersection of Security and Privacy

March 30, 2015

You’re invited to attend the next Women in Security and Privacy group meet-up where a panel will discuss, “Security Meets Privacy” – a discussion on the intersection of information security and privacy. The event takes place on April 1st from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Price Waterhouse Coopers, located at 3 Embarcadero Center #20, San Francisco, CA 94111.

Security and privacy go hand-in-hand when it comes to building secure online tools that consumers can trust with their information. However, security and privacy are different ideas. Security relates to the protection of personal information from threats, such as hackers, while privacy encompasses how personal data is collected, managed, stored and shared. At TRUSTe, we deal with privacy but it is very much intertwined with security. Companies today are realizing the importance to both, since business impact remains high if these issues are sidelined.

Panelists will include Sibley Bacon, Director of Engineering at Google; Malita Barkataki, Privacy Compliance Director at Yahoo!; Kristy Edwards, expert in Enterprise Security, Cloud and HealthIT; and Bhavana Nathani, Manager of Cybersecurity and Privacy at PwC.

The Women in Security and Privacy group was created to bring female privacy and security professionals together to share ideas, network and listen to guest speakers.
