Event Speakers to Explore Link Between Data Privacy and Data Security

November 5 – 6 at Columbia University’s Lerner Hall #PrivSecNY

The differences between security and privacy are often complex and there are always areas of overlap between the two, so we’re bringing experts together from both areas to discuss and offer solutions to industry challenges.

More than 30 million data records have been exposed in just 13 breaches in the first half of 2019. Despite continued incidents like these, privacy (data protection) and cybersecurity teams continue to operate in silos in many organizations. Why does this problem exist and how can it be fixed?

This is just one of the many issues on the agenda for PrivSec, New York this November 5 – 6 at Columbia University’s Lerner Hall. The first U.S. conference hosted by the Data Protection World Forum (DPWF) -one of the world’s leading organizations focused on data protection, privacy, and security - PrivSec New York will feature a comprehensive program, from policies and procedures to compliance and incident response, to help organizations navigate the maze of data protection and cybersecurity requirements.

More than 1,000 attendees are expected to attend PrivSec, New York, to attend sessions presented by both local and international experts, including:

  • David Carroll, The Great Hack, associate professor
  • Kevin Thomas, New York State Senator
  • Anju Khurana, Director and Head of Data Privacy and Protection, BNY Melon
  • Derek Care, Director of Privacy II legal, Uber

“The differences between security and privacy are often complex and there are always areas of overlap between the two, so we’re bringing experts together from both areas to discuss and offer solutions to industry challenges,” said Nick James, CEO and founder, DPWF.

“We chose New York to host our first U.S. based event since it’s the epicenter of the financial services industry and houses many of the world’s largest businesses, as well as many leading technology companies,” James continues.

DPWF has attracted thousands of attendees to its events around the world seeking advice, guidance, information on data protection, privacy and cybersecurity. The organization has worked with leading brands to deliver conferences and exhibitions including OneTrust, Microsoft, IBM, and TrustArc. PrivSec New York is the first of several U.S. events DPWF has planned in 2020.
