About

Advanced Data, Digital and Security Winter Symposium

The aim of the conference is to promote and facilitate discussion, exchange information, and fill the knowledge gap needed via in depth presentations of the highest quality on topics of interest to a broad audience of data protection, privacy and security practitioners, lawyers, and vendors.

The conference will address the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered, and solutions adopted.

The conference will presume an advanced familiarity of privacy and data security issues and is intended for seasoned professionals looking to hone their skills.

“There are many conferences for data, digital and security, but very few that provide the advanced insights that most professionals working in these areas need. I know from my conversations with other professionals that there is demand for an advanced conference. We also want to move on from the “usual suspects” speaker line-up that many conferences are built around, to give more people an opportunity to display their expertise and establish their reputations.  This is why we’ve developed this advanced conference. Please join us on our journey to better, more advanced learning.”

Stewart Room, Global Head of Data Protection, Privacy and Cyber Security Legal, Strategy and Consulting Services at DWF Law LLP and Technology, Media and Communications Sector Leader.
