Data & Drinks: Building Resilient Privacy Solutions | Capitol Hill

October 24 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Come join us for a riveting evening of cocktails and insightful conversations around adapting, complying and innovating in an ever-changing world of privacy and data security. Bringing together local tech founders, c-suite executives and in-house counsel, with a particularly warm welcome to women, LGBTQ and minority professionals, we’ll discuss what large businesses are doing to build resilient privacy compliance programs, methods for emerging companies to meet legal obligations without full time privacy counsel, and how architects are designing products with privacy at the forefront. This engaging program will include two brief presentations and a panel discussion, drinks & small bites, networking and plenty of time for questions.

Here’s a sneak preview of the evening’s events:

  • Leveraging Resources to Build a Successful Privacy Law Compliance Program in an Ever-Changing Regulatory Landscape – Holly Gion, Director of Data Privacy, Alaska Airlines
  • The Role of Big Data in Privacy Law Compliance – Drew Schuil, Integris
  • Panel Discussion: Tackling Changes in Privacy Laws from Startups to Fortune 500s — Kat Robinson, AGC Global Privacy & Security, Nike; Erika Voss, Business Information Security Officer, Salesforce; Harini Gokul, Technology Leader and Investor
