Technology is a double-edged sword. It’s your competitive advantage – and a source of risk. Innovation can hold the key to your success, but it can also expose you to privacy breaches, reputational damage, enforcement action and litigation. Ensuring you’re capitalizing on your technology while protecting your customers’ data has never been more important.

This full-day event features breakout sessions for two different audiences: C-suite executives and senior leadership looking to grow their businesses and manage risk, and legal counsel, IT personnel and contract managers tasked with safeguarding business and customer data.
