Event: Bridging the data security and privacy gap

Security and privacy are inherently linked, yet decisions about each are often made in silos. It can be a challenge for teams of all sizes, with varied specialities, to connect the two domains.

With that in mind, we’re pleased to announce our first live panel event: How do you bridge the gap between data security and privacy?

As part of our partnership with Trace, this discussion invites professionals from the tech, privacy, security, and engineering communities to share their success stories and challenges. Chaired by Trace’s Sorcha Lorimer, the panelists will discuss how each specialty views their individual domains, what gaps exist between domains, where both industries are headed, which practical solutions work best, and more.
