“The Privacy + Security Academy’s online courses are informative and interesting.  I used the modules as additional study materials in my preparation for the IAPP’s CIPP/US exam, and found them to be helpful in improving my understanding of the subject matter.”

From an article in SecurityCurrent by David Sheidlower:

“The Privacy and Security Forum offered professionals from many varied backgrounds the opportunity to hear from speakers that were in fields that impact theirs. Hearing from people who are not your peers but whose work sometimes has dramatic impact on your own is a fairly unique experience in our fields. More times than not, you are listening to someone who is directly in your filed (for me: other security professionals) or service your field (vendors). This event was broader than that and so extremely valuable in preparing professionals for the changing landscape of Privacy and Security. It was great to be a part of it.”

“The Privacy and Security Forum is one of the best conferences on the topic I’ve been part of. The wealth of sessions and caliber of the speakers and the attendees is top notch.  But what really stands it apart is the small size of each session that allows for real conversations and dynamic discussions between panelists and attendees.”

“This forum brought together a rare nexus of exceptional expertise from the front lines, with timely, relevant, and practical session topics that allowed attendees to target what sessions they would attend based on their own level of privacy & security awareness and competency.  Furthering the concept of allowing attendees to design their own session roadmap tailored to their specific interests and guided by beginner/intermediate/advanced classifications to each session topic, the speakers encouraged robust audience participation so that all participants could learn from their fellow attendees’ experiences, as well as recent struggles and successes in addressing the session topic as it related to the ever-evolving cyber exposure in their particular business community.”

“As the privacy profession and organizational needs in information security and privacy have matured, the need for deeper, longer conference sessions with more provocative ideas and practical takeaways has become apparent.  The Privacy + Security Forum fills that niche and begins to meet those needs, pushing at the limits of practical value and depth in privacy conferences and tying privacy to security.  As Dan Solove said every morning, if they don’t give you enough, “HECKLE them!”

“The Forum is a must-attend conference for those working in the privacy field. The organizers have managed to attract top-notch speakers, addressing the most cutting-edge (and technically difficult) topics in law, technology, and privacy best practices. Specific topics like health and education are particularly well-covered.”

“I was very impressed with this conference.  Every session I attended was advanced and interactive.  My only complaint was there were too many sessions I wanted to attend scheduled at the same time!  It was the best collection of experts speaking together in one place that I’ve seen.  If this conference is not yet on your radar, it should be.”

“The 2015 Privacy and Security Forum provided actionable guidance for practitioners, from a holistic perspective, in an academically rigorous format. As such it was a truly unique event in a very crowded space of competing privacy and security conferences, and a forum that I plan to attend annually. Kudos to the organizers.”
