The International Privacy+Security Forum is an annual sister event to the Privacy+Security Forum, an annual event held in October at George Washington University in Washington, DC. The Int’l Forum event focuses on privacy and security laws from around the world. The main feature of Forum events is that we have deep-dive sessions on topics. We attract highly seasoned professionals, and we encourage highly interactive sessions.
The International Forum is a new annual sister event to the Privacy+Security Forum, an annual event held in October at George Washington University in Washington, DC. The regular Privacy+Security Forum will be in its 4th year in 2018. This past year, we had 800 participants.
Paul Schwartz and I created the International Forum to recognize the profound importance of international privacy and security law, not just abroad, but here in the United States.
I created a new poster about information security training, which is debuting at the RSA conference. This poster is based on the fact that the vast majority of information security incidents and data breaches occur because of human mistakes. Information security is only in small part a technology problem; it is largely a human problem.
If you’re at RSA and are interested in information security awareness training, please drop by the TeachPrivacy booth at Moscone North 4802.
You can pick up a copy of this poster. And you can also learn about our newest training, which includes a really neat Where’s Waldo style game where users spot privacy and security risks.
At my annual event, the Privacy+Security Forum, which was held last month, one of the sessions involved privacy and security in fiction. The panelists had some terrific readings suggestions, and I thought I’d share with you the write-up that they generated for their session. The speakers were:
Peter Winn, Assistant U.S. Attorney, U.S. DOJ and Lecturer, University of Washington School of Law
Heather West, Senior Policy Manager & Americas Principal, Mozilla
Kevin Bankston, Director, Open Technology Institute and Co-Director, Cybersecurity Initiative, New America
