Interaction is at the heart of this conference...

At the world’s longest running independent international privacy event, you are sure to gain professionally by networking with your peers. Many of the speakers attend the entire conference, providing you with an ideal opportunity to have direct contact with the key decision-makers, regulators, privacy lawyers, consultants and company privacy managers. Everyone mixes easily, not only in formal sessions but also at meal times, included in your registration fee, and in social events, such as evening drinks receptions in the college gardens, guided walks and punting.

The Privacy Laws & Business 27th Annual International Conference, New Horizons – New Risks, took place in July 2014 and featured around 40 speakers and chairs from 13 countries in Europe, Asia, North and Latin America over 3 intensive days.

By attending the 2015 conference, you will better distinguish the myths from the realities, understand the new challenges and accompanying risks presented by privacy and data protection laws, and identify the new opportunities on the horizon.


What are the implications for the way laws are interpreted and enforced by the regulators? How will you assess the impact on your company in different countries? Where is your room for manoeuvre? What does your organisation need to do to navigate your route through these challenges, conducting your business with one eye on your immediate operational needs and the other eye on the ever widening horizon?

We will keep you up to date via email, LinkedIn, Twitter #PLB2015AC and Facebook.


“The Privacy Laws and Business Annual International Conference provides real depth and breadth on all the important privacy issues, and a chance to mix with many different industry specialists.  As well as giving a thorough understanding of how the privacy world is today, it also (and more importantly) gives you real insight into where it is heading.”
Janet Lane, Experian, UK

"It was a fantastic conference - all the talks first class and the delegates all very knowledgeable. To come down to breakfast and sit between Jacob Kohnstamm [Chairman of the Netherlands Data Protection Commission and Chair of the EU Art. 29 Data Protection Working Party], and David Smith [Deputy Information Commissioner, United Kingdom]... highest quality privacy debate from dawn to dusk!”
Marcus Evans, Norton Rose Fulbright, UK

“Hearing from DPA’s/regulators and other countries – often we think something cannot be done and then we learn it is done elsewhere and works.”

“The conference was engaging, interesting and enjoyable plus a great opportunity to network
and pick up useful tips and guidance”
Helen Gourdin, DIAGEO, UK

"I think PL&B’s Cambridge event is unique... something for everyone at every level.”
Geraldine Henbest, Ernst & Young Global, UK

“Insightful presentations, a collegial atmosphere and thoughtful organisation of the event made for an enjoyable and valuable experience.”
Joseph Kwon, KPMG, USA
