The Privacy Officers Network (PON) gives Senior Privacy Officers an opportunity to meet their specific peer group regularly to exchange views on matters of common interest in a confidential environment.
Some meetings are roundtables with national Data Protection Commissioners while others are private discussions among group members, giving participants the opportunity to exchange insights and experience which provide solutions to common problems.

PON Member Benefits
PON enables senior privacy officers involved in the practical implementation of privacy initiatives to meet and exchange ideas and creates a professional network of support for members.
PON members have a unique opportunity to exchange views with regulators who are responsible for creating and implementing policy, and to discuss the development of future privacy initiatives. There is an exchange of ideas and experience on national and international privacy laws and related policy developments and the ways that member organisations organise their compliance functions.
Privacy Laws & Business provides the secretariat.
