    Defending Data: Meeting Changing Privacy Regulations

    With rapidly changing regulations, keeping up has become essential function for cybersecurity executives. Now, more than ever, leaders must also have a solid grasp on how these regulations and guidelines will impact organizations. This keynote panel brings together executives who bridge the gap between security and compliance, examining ways to channel new policies into tangible security strategies.

    This session will address:

    • The evolution of the current regulatory landscape
    • Company responsibility for meeting new regulations
    • Navigating changing compliance
    • Preparing for data privacy and compliance needs of the future

    Now comes your turn to share ideas. Each table is headed by a Discussion Leader, ready with questions based on the keynote panel topic. Tables will collectively brainstorm opportunities to address challenges addressed by the panel. Attendees will then switch tables twice to discuss a new set of challenges and questions with a different group of peers. This allows attendees to connect and have in-depth conversations with more peers bringing unique perspectives from across different disciplines and industries.

    Discussions will continue to percolate across the entire space as attendees have the opportunity to refresh drinks and tapas.

    The program closes by wrapping up the evening’s conversation into tangible takeaways to implement into your own organization.
