We face global threats and challenges we’ve never seen before. The issues of privacy, cyber security, and election security require strong leadership.

The Privacy XChange Forum—now in its sixth year - is the world’s premier thought leadership event for cyber security and privacy and will convene in Lisbon, Portugal, an emerging European tech capital on April 30-May 1.

The PXF theme for this year focuses on cyber risk, technology, and security. With Europe's GDPR rules taking effect soon, businesses large and small are impacted and new international privacy standards and regulations are changing the way business is conducted. Cyber is not just an IT responsibility, it impacts everyone. If you are connected… you are at risk. If your organization is connected… the costs are too great to ignore. Privacy XChange Forum connects leaders with key experts to evaluate the threats, understand what’s on the horizon, and how best to prepare. PXF delegates throughout the world drive real change as top leaders of their organizations.

PXF 2018 promises an all star line up of speakers, including former Senator Al Franken, former President of Estonia, Toomas Hendrik IIves, privacy activist Max Schrems and Dan Shefet, lawyer and advocate for "the right to be forgotten".

One of the event highlights will be former Senator Al Franken making his first public appearance since resigning from the US Senate with his much anticipated keynote speech Lies and Lying Liars 2018: Privacy, Competition and Russia Election Meddling. Franken warns that "Recent scandals like the Cambridge Analytica breach and the Russian interference in our 2016 election were shocking -- but not surprising if you've been paying attention to tech companies' failure to protect users, and the U.S. government's failure to hold them accountable. As a Senator, I fought to implement laws that would protect users' personal information and raised the alarm about the growing influence of these new corporate giants. Now, I'm coming to Lisbon to talk about what went wrong in the lead up to these scandals—and what we need to do to make sure it doesn't happen again."

CyberScout Founder and host of PXF Adam Levin, applauds the impressive list of strong privacy and cyber security leaders who will speak at this year's conference, making it a must-attend event. "We face global threats and challenges we’ve never seen before. The issues of privacy, cyber security, and election security require strong leadership. Al Franken has been a long time firebrand on these issues before and since his resignation from the US Senate. Among lawmakers in the United States, Senator Franken is a crucial voice on the topics of privacy and cyber security, and CyberScout is both excited and privileged to have him speak at the Privacy XChange Forum 2018."
