Best Privacy Conferences 2021 – 2022

"Best In Category" Series

Future of IAM

Privacy and security are two inter-related niches within Cybersecurity, you can’t have one without the other. Whereas Privacy can be described as being the control you have over another person’s (or organization’s) personal information and how it’s used, Security refers to how the data is being protected. Out of all the InfoSec conferences we list in our directory I’d consider the Privacy conferences to be one of the most high-valued “must-attend” events if you work in the industry because that’s where you’ll learn the most.

These are the recommended conferences I’ve pulled from our directory. I’ll add to this list as and when notable privacy events are submitted to our directory.

About This List

As the year progresses, we will add more recommended activities for the next year; usually, this is determined by conferences submitted to our directory.

If you work in this vital area, I highly urge you to attend these events. You must attend any of these activities.

Few issues evoke as much discussion among experts around the world as the GDPR. Data privacy, on the other hand, is critical for long-term innovation in today’s business and society.

After all of these reforms, the upcoming e-privacy legislation poses a slew of questions and tasks for businesses and privacy experts both within and outside of the European Union.
