Government speakers will appear from the Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Secret Service, Homeland Security and several other agencies. Speakers also hail from Germany, Ireland, Korea, Japan, the U.K. and more.

Co-founded by Daniel Solove of George Washington University Law School and Paul Schwartz of the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, the event was an immediate success in 2015, hailed by one attendee as “the best collection of experts speaking together in one place that I’ve seen.”

“The purpose of the event is to bring together seasoned thought leaders to break down the silos of privacy and security, create rigorous discussion, and deliver practical takeaways,” Solove said.

“I think we’ve created something truly unique,” Schwartz added. “The forum is proving itself invaluable to privacy and security professionals, chief information officers, attorneys, academics, think tanks, technologists and policymakers.”
