Data Protection World Forum Summit



Sponsor Opportunities


Taking place on the 4th anniversary of the General Data Protection Regulation coming into force the Data Protection World Forum Summit will bring together a hand-picked, carefully curated audience of senior-level delegates.

Data protection has evolved from an obscure compliance obligation to a board-level concern.

Data and privacy are now so vital that data protection leaders can transform businesses, not only by protecting their organisations from liability and enforcement—but by building stakeholder trust and driving value.

The Data Protection World Forum Summit will enable executive and C-suite data protection professionals to enhance their knowledge, hone their skills, and keep ahead of the game in this unpredictable, yet vibrant field.

The Data Protection World Forum Summit will:

• Provide high-level learning experiences suitable for those at the top of their field.

• Engage with cutting-edge data protection technology and regulation topics to help leaders influence company policy and prepare for the future.

• Offer an opportunity to build professional relationships with like-minded individuals.

• Create a leadership community that can affect real influence in the data protection sector.

Invited attendees will be senior decision makers with purchasing responsibility. We have a very limited number of complimentary invitations remaining. If you’d like to attend…

What will be covered?

The Data Protection World Forum Summit is a community of learning - not a conference. But participants will receive valuable insights into the industry’s emerging complexities and future trends, with themes including:

Embracing the Opportunity of Regulatory Change

The regulatory environment across digital and data-driven services is constantly in flux.

In the UK, data protection law could become more liberal, while the EU and the US are looking to tighten their rules.

All change brings opportunities for those with the right knowledge and skills. The summit will explore how data protection leaders plan ahead and leverage upcoming reforms to improve their organisation’s market position.

Driving Efficiency Amid Increasing Complexity

Increasingly complex rules on issues like data transfers and information security can consume vast resources.

But competent individuals with access to the right systems and technology can spot efficiency gains that put them ahead of the competition.

The summit will explore the efficiency challenges facing privacy and security teams, and how to address these via policy and leadership.

Building and Maintaining Stakeholder Trust

Trust in a brand is an increasingly vital consideration for consumers, investors, and employees.

With ever-higher public awareness of privacy issues, how can data protection leaders help their organisations portray an authentically trustworthy and transparent public image?

The Next Generation of Privacy-Enhancing Technology

Contractual and organisational controls have failed to solve the big problems of data protection. Instead, political, and corporate leaders are betting big on privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs).

The Data Protection World Forum Summit will explore the cutting-edge PETs that may hold the answer to privacy’s most taxing questions—and could transform how organisations use data.
