Lourdes Turrecha, Alexandra Ross, Caroline McCaffery, Debra Farber, Melanie Ensign

In this workshop, The Rise of Privacy Tech (TROPT) Founder, Lourdes Turrecha, along with the TROPT Privacy Tech Working Group members that worked on the foundational TROPT Defining the Privacy Tech Landscape Whitepaper 2021will define and categorize the emerging  privacy tech industry. In addition to defining each category they’ve identified, they will go over the customer persona(s), the basic features, and the current limitations of available solutions. In addition, they will help privacy tech buyer-users articulate their technical privacy pain points, coach them to advocate internally for the privacy tech budget they need and deserve, and teach them how to identify available privacy tech solutions to their biggest technical privacy problems. Finally, this workshop will help privacy domain experts find privacy tech opportunities, from landing privacy tech advisory, consulting, and in-house roles, to cofounding a privacy tech startup and even Angel investing in them.
