Picture from the Direct Marketing Association event in London on September 28th, which TrustArc sponsored. Four months after the May 25th deadline, 145 privacy and marketing specialists gathered in London to share thoughts about the next phase of GDPR implementation. Why? Because May 25th was not the end of GDPR, and people did not stop working on their compliance programs. Indeed, everyone agreed that the volume of rights requests across all industries has increased.

Top 5 Things the CISO Needs to Know About Data Privacy
October 15, 9-10 a.m. PST
Data security and privacy are very much intertwined. Any Chief Information Security Officer should understand the entire data security and privacy ecosystem, and how to identify potential data risk – from protecting information to keeping systems secure to being clear about their data practices. It is not enough to assume that if you have security or do good data protection, you therefore have privacy. It’s much more nuanced than that. In this webinar, which is part of the Privacy Insight
Series, you’ll hear from guest speaker Heidi Shey, Security & Risk Analyst at Forrester Research about how CISO’s should approach privacy and the top five things you need to know to ensure privacy is a key part of your armory.
This week began with the 5th annual European Data Protection Days that serves to bring privacy specialists, government officials and thought leaders from all over the world together in Berlin to discuss the key issues in data privacy management.

On the 5th, TRUSTe hosted a Roundtable as part of our successful Privacy Insight Series that provides a more intimate environment for top privacy leaders to discuss current privacy challenges.

pii, which stands for “privacy, identity and innovation” is a uniquely different privacy conference that @Jim_Adler describes perfectly as the “the best gathering of wonks, geeks, and suits.” This year, the event kicks off on Monday, September 16th with a daylong global data protection workshop – a must if you need a crash course in what’s been happening in data protection around the world.
