No Rest for the Weary: The Continued Convergence of Privacy and Security
Date: June 13-14, 2019
Location: Boston, MA

This June we provide you an opportunity to learn from industry experts and explore the ever-changing and dynamic world at the intersection of Privacy and Security! The ISSA Executive Forum series is proud to be partnering with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the world’s largest privacy organization with nearly 50,000 members worldwide. With Europe’s landmark GDPR legislation less than a year old, newly proposed legislation from several US states (most prominently California) promises to make 2019 an even more crucial year for obtaining a greater understanding of the privacy landscape. Together, ISSA and IAPP are working to exchange knowledge and experiences in order for all to make sense of these changes -- adding a deeper knowledge to each other’s skill-set is now no longer a “nice to have” — it is essential! 

This is an event focused on benefiting our Executive members and qualified guests. The ISSA Executive Forum is your chance to escape from the blizzard of buzzwords to meet up with your peers, industry experts, and specially selected security vendors in a relaxed and confidential environment. In this session, we will discuss real privacy and security programs, share real-world scenarios, and learn from each other. 

Finally, attendees at the June 2019 event will have a chance to help shape the content and format for future meetings of the ISSA Executive Forum in 2019 and beyond. 

We look forward to seeing you at this year's event in Boston!

Warm Regards,

Marc Thompson

ISSA Executive Director
