PrivSec North 2023



27th & 28th June 2023

Manchester, UK.


PrivSec North

PrivSec North is a two-day, in-person event taking place in Manchester, UK in June 2023.

The UK has one of the world’s most advanced digital economies, and the Governance, Risk and Compliance market here has been cited as one of the world’s busiest by Michael Rasmussen, global GRC Pundit and the “Godfather of GRC”.

The acceleration of data and artificial intelligence in all facets of business and our personal lives necessitates controls and measures to properly safeguard us all.The desire for industry events outside of London has arisen through cost, convenience, and demand. And so PrivSec North will serve as a Northern base for the data protection, privacy and security community to meet, debate and learn in a knowledge sharing environment.


PrivSec North will feature thought leaders, industry experts and senior professionals from world- renowned companies sharing their knowledge, case studies and experience - and providing insightful, actionable content to an audience of end user professionals.

A must-attend event for data protection, privacy and security professionals who are keen to network, learn, discuss and seek out solutions. 

PrivSec North will help attending organisations learn more about trust, digital transformation, ethics, data protection, privacy and security challenges, solutions and opportunities - and provide a chance to network with peers and develop business relationships.

Feedback from our previous PrivSec event in Manchester


”I received hands-on advice and practical information regarding the main chanllenges and best methods to be compliant with the GDPR. I enjoyed especially the exchange of opinions and discussions between the speakers and the audience. I think this is the most enriching aspect of the event.”
