KNOW Identity Forum Seattle: Privacy and the Data Economy

November 14 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


A renowned “Tech Hub,” Seattle has been home to some of the Internet’s biggest success stories, like Amazon and Microsoft, as well as over 1,500 growing tech companies. As the digital transformation continues to unfold, It is critical for tech companies to recognize the importance of collecting data is a secure and private manner.

Brought to you by OWI, Uniken, Sentinel, and Blueprint, this KNOW Identity forum will dig into the narratives around the data economy, exploring the balance between aggregate data sets and privacy concerns. The evening’s program will address the most pressing data privacy questions such as:

How will dynamic data privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA, affect the next-generation of product development? Are these regulations sufficient guardrails to protect personal data or can we be doing more?
What are the most promising privacy-enabling technologies and techniques available in the marketplace today?
How can digital platforms maintain a competitive advantage over the competition while prioritizing data privacy and user security?
What are the most important characteristics of effective, enforceable data privacy policies?
The evening will also include interactive activities, exclusive peer-to-peer networking, small bites and refreshments.

Attendance is limited to 75.
