Security v. Privacy Conference

Wednesday, 11 September 2002, 12:13 AM EST

18-19 September 2002 - Seattle, Washington.

Security v. Privacy takes place one year after terrorism and technology converged with global repercussions. International corporations and governments have new mandates concerning heightened security even as they must balance those with increased demands for privacy in data collection and transactions.

Experts from security and privacy agencies, telecommunications, law and government will address the pressing and practical issues that you face doing virtually any Internet-based business today.

Security v. Privacy includes two full days of keynotes, general sessions, and over a dozen topical tracks that address your concerns about Internet law and policy.

The general sessions feature special keynotes and expert panels for all conference-goers. Attendees also choose between two simultaneous tracks that address compelling topical issues in detail. We have planned breaks, lunches and a welcome reception so you have the opportunity to network and discuss ideas with your colleagues.

Among the globally recognized experts who will be speaking at the conference are: Commissioner Orson Swindle of the US Federal Trade Commission; Dr. Detlef Eckert, Head of Unit for Policy Planning, Information Society DG, European Commission; George Radwanski, Privacy Commissioner of Canada; Marc Rotenberg, Executive Director of EPIC; John Ryan, Vice President & Associate General Counsel, Compliance and Investigations at America Online Inc.; Yoshihiro Aragane, Group Senior Vice President, Fujitsu Limited; Professor Michael Geist, University of Ottawa; Richard Purcell, Chief Privacy Officer, Microsoft Corporation; Malcom Crompton, Privacy Commissioner of Australia.
