Are you prepared?

Privacy breaches are headlining the news all too frequently, making it more important than ever for organisations to understand the risks.

Whether you’re hands on responsible as an IT Professional, or accountable as an executive – you need to be across the latest tools and systems to help secure their data and ensure the privacy of your customers.

Join industry experts and your peers to learn about best-practice methodologies and real-life case studies to help you comply with increasingly complex privacy laws.
