Data Privacy: a Scorching Hot Topic at the Gartner Security & Risk Summit – and Everywhere Else!

by in Security

What’s a good synonym for a ‘hot topic’? Sensitive, controversial, viral…Data Privacy is all of these. It’s a topic of such pressing interest, that it’s as relevant to the anti-establishment and hacker culture at Black Hat and Defcon as to the Federal Trade Commission. Data Privacy intersects culture, ethics, politics, technology, innovation, your business, and mine.

The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2019, in National Harbor MD, June 17 – 20 promises to help you shift your organizational culture to improve cybersecurity, privacy, and business resilience.

Gartner’s take on Data Privacy

On Data Privacy, for example, Bart Willemsen, VP Analyst at Gartner, will cover how privacy relates to analytics (“Do GDPR, LGPD, CCPA etc. really mean you can’t touch any data for analytics anymore?”). Senior Director Analyst Nader Henein helps you get ready for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). If your concern is dealing with too many mandates, too many programs, Jie Zhang, Sr. Director Analyst, offers a guide to reusing GDPR compliance investment for other major regional and country-specific privacy requirements. That’s a small random sample of the terrific content at this Gartner Summit!
