TRUSTe Privacy Risk Summit 2016 – Highlights

June 10, 2016

Privacy Risk Summit Highlight

250 privacy professionals converged in San Francisco this week to discuss the challenges they face in managing emerging privacy risks and share strategies for success. They enjoyed a packed day of inspiring keynotes, expert panels and, of course, networking acquiring new ideas and practical advice to take back to the office.

The TRUSTe Privacy Risk Summit brought together over 50 speakers across 24 sessions and 4 parallel tracks. A highly engaged audience was captivated from the start by a culinary-inspired keynote from Hilary Wandall at Merck & Co., Inc. “Deconstructing the Privacy Risk Dish” to a personal and historic perspective on the new EU-U.S. Privacy Shield from Justin Antonipillai, Counselor to the Secretary Penny Pritzker after two years as the co-lead U.S. negotiator with the European Commission.
