Events of Interest: American Conference Institute’s 8th National Symposium on Privacy and Security of Data (Jan. 27-28)
From the press release:Â
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cureâ€¦especially when it comes to privacy protection.
We all understand that the privacy and security of customer and employee data is one of the pre-eminent issues of our time and that the threats can sometimes be overwhelming. But, in today’s world, it is a shared threat. No organization exists in isolation in our technology-driven world, and every entity is reliant on the best practices of others to ensure that all of our customer and employee data is secure.
Every front-page news story about the mishandling of customer data impacts us all; competitors, vendors, partners, affiliates, and clients alike. It goes without saying that we all want to do the right thing by our customers and employees to protect their information. But in order to do so, we all have to ensure that the knowledge is shared, and our practices are benchmarked against each other.
ACIâ€™s 8th National Symposium on Privacy & Security of Consumer and Employee Information will provide privacy leaders with a forum for gaining best practices that will benefit the entire industry. This event is designed to be part learning, part networking and part insurance policy. At the very least, attending this event will ensure that you form contacts and relationships which will prove invaluable when the “worst” should happen. And, by attending this essential event you will:
- Ensure compliance with the latest FTC rules on identity theft and affiliate-marketing
- Protect sensitive information in the hands of third parties through effective vendor management
- Develop a comprehensive international privacy program for the collection, use and transfer of data
- Prevent insider threats from infiltrating your organization and minimize data breaches
- Implement privacy and security policies for a remote and mobile workforce
