Resetting Privacy: Winning Trust

05 - 07 July 2021

Online Event


6 sessions over 3 days

While the pandemic hopefully fades into the past, this is the time for resetting privacy and, despite the challenges, winning and retaining trust.

While the world moves slowly, cautiously back to “normal” work, and the pandemic hopefully fades into the past, the world’s 145 data privacy laws remain the same but the context has changed. After this fundamental shock to the familiar privacy law eco-system, this online conference addresses major themes in six one hour sessions over the three days at our traditional conference period. This is a time for resetting privacy and, despite the challenges, winning and retaining trust.


All sessions are 75 minutes and will include time for questions.
