How the Big Tech Firms Protect Consumer Privacy

Saturday, March 12
9:30AM - 10:30AM

JW Marriott
Salon 5
110 E 2nd St

As data hoarding continues to become an integral part of society, companies are looking to Chief Privacy Officers to help manage data protection and privacy concerns. Demand for data security and privacy professionals has grown exponentially and organizations are recognizing the need to better manage privacy and examine how they handle data within their organization. CPOs from some of today’s top companies will debate the current challenges in the privacy landscape and what they’re doing to protect you, the consumer. Whether it is information they house or information you house on their platforms, privacy is prevalent in the consumer area today.
