Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 27, 2013 -- The first Privacy XChange Forum will be held on November 3-5 in Paradise Valley, Ariz. As businesses face new privacy challenges and data exposures, they’re often unprepared to protect themselves against reputational damage, expensive government penalties, loss in consumer trust and other forms of backlash. The forum brings together thought leaders and executives from government, as well as financial, insurance, education, healthcare and privacy sectors.
Sessions will be led by world renowned speakers and experts in an intimate environment designed to encourage thoughtful dialogue. A sample of sessions includes titles such as:
• Tales From the Trenches: Real-Life Data Breach Scenarios, Considerations & Solutions
• Privacy By Design: Embedding Privacy to Promote Trust, Transparency and Confidence
• From the Firing Lines to a Fireside Chat: Perspectives on Personal and Professional Security From a Former White House CIO
• Fast Forward: 2014 Fraud Trends
Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX), a longtime privacy advocate and Co-Founder of the Congressional Privacy Caucus, was one of thousands of patients whose records were exposed when a National Institutes of Health laptop was stolen in February 2008.
“The topic of confidentiality and the sensitivity of personal information hits close to home for many reasons,” said Congressman Barton. “It is absolutely imperative that businesses and consumers do not take the sensitivity of their personal information lightly. Thieves are increasingly finding new vulnerabilities and exploiting victims every day. Businesses need to be educated about how to spot data exposures, change risky processes and practices, and implement proper employee training in order to stay guarded from identity thieves.”
The conference is currently invitation only and begins with a golf tournament featuring CBS Sports Golf Analyst Gary McCord on Sunday, Nov. 3. Other activities include dinners, networking events and cocktail hours. Sponsors include BE Re Underwriters, LLC, Rust Kinsella, Robinson & Cole LLP, LexisNexis, Perr & Knight, Travelers Boiler RE, and AAIS.
Conference Co-Chair, Co-Founder of IDentity Theft 911 and Credit.com, and Former New Jersey Director of Consumer Affairs Adam Levin said, “The security of any organization is only as strong as its weakest link. When it comes to enterprise security, humans have proven time and again that they are the weakest link. This conference is designed to empower businesses and consumers to react quickly to a data or identity compromise. It is inevitable that we will all be victims of identity theft and privacy faux pas, but if managed properly, the impact doesn’t have to be devastating.”
