PRIVACY & DATA GOVERNANCE CONGRESS
Organizations are coming to grips with the reality that privacy is inextricably linked to success — and that their success depends on earning the trust of governments, regulators, employees, and the public.
Organizations are all Banking on Privacy to build their bottom lines.
The 2019 Congress is your opportunity to explore leading issues at the crossroads of privacy, access, security, law and technology.
Registration for this program is significantly limited to ensure a high speaker-delegate ratio and a strong participatory experience.
The Congress will bring together some of the top thinkers from the privacy, data governance, information security, and legal worlds. Join us to get a clearer view of how privacy, access, security, compliance, law and technology intersect, and why that matters to you, your career, and your organization.
One of our delegates put it simply: “Without exaggeration, it is the best conference/congress I have attended.”
The PACC Congress takes a refreshingly pragmatic approach by presenting practical guidance from a truly varied assortment of perspectives and experiences. Not theory, sales pitches, or recitations of annual reports.
This unique program features a heavily participatory format that helps attendees develop practical skills in data protection.
The Congress agenda includes top industry leaders, engaging speakers, interactive workshops and executive panel discussions. speakers from different locations, sectors and organizations offer a range of views that are never the same-old, same-old. And there’s no manels*.
The Congress is about quality, not quantity and that’s why Congress attendees and speakers are unequivocal in their praise.
CONNECT WITH COLLEAGUES
The Congress is much more than workshops, breakout and plenary sessions. It’s a meeting place where people come together to share stories and ideas. To network with colleagues from public and private organizations as well as from federal, provincial, and territorial governments, industry, academia and regulatory authorities. To make new connections and enhance individual skills.
After attending a PACC Congress you’ll look at traditional conferences differently. But don’t take our word for it: Click to discover what previous attendees say.
EARN WHILE YOU LEARN
The Congress is a unique professional development opportunity:
- Sessions are longer than at most conferences (though we’re flattered to see other conferences have started offering longer sessions).
- Formal presentations are shorter — so that speakers have plenty of time to present their views, and delegates have time to ask questions and get real, unscripted answers.
- The few panels we do have are generally even longer — so everyone has time to share their insights.
- Sponsors’ representatives may participate, but that doesn’t give them license to pitch their product during a session or workshop. After all, you’re here to learn, not to be sold to.
- And we encourage speakers to leave the PowerPoint presentations behind so that they can have meaningful conversations with delegates instead of focusing on a screen.
To accomplish all of that, registration is strictly limited.
You’ll receive great value. We think that delegates and speakers who attend the Congress should be able to attend the entire Congress. That’s why workshops, sessions, networking and meals are all included in the full conference registration fee.
We discourage speakers from shilling their products or services — which means we decline sponsorships from companies that insist it’s their right to deliver what amounts to thinly-veiled sales pitches. (If that’s what you think makes a great conference, we can suggest several other events to attend.)
Despite that, our all-in registration fees are remarkably affordable.
This year we are strictly limiting registration to 200 attendees.
