Congress

The 2017 Congress is your opportunity to explore leading issues at the crossroads of privacy, access, security, law and technology.  Network with peers and colleagues from industry and government. Get a clearer view of how privacy, access, security, law and technology intersect, why that matters to you and your organization, and discover what you need to meet your compliance obligations in A World of Change.

The PACC Congress takes a refreshingly practical approach. The Congress is a unique professional development opportunity that leverages practical examples and real-life case studies. Sessions are longer than at most conferences, and 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. To accomplish that — and because the Congress is about quality, not quantity — registration is strictly limited.

The Congress is much more than plenary sessions and workshops. It is a meeting place where delegates and speakers have the chance to reconnect with colleagues from public and private institutions, federal, provincial and territorial governments, industry, academia and regulatory authorities — to make new connections, share ideas, and enhance individual skills.

You will receive solid content and be spared from listening to vendor pitches. Sponsors’ representatives may participate, but that doesn’t give them license to pitch their product during a session or workshop. After all, you’re attending to learn; you’re not attending to be sold to.

And you will receive great valueWe think that delegates and speakers who attend the Congress should be able to attend the entire Congress. That’s why all workshops, meals, and sessions are included in the conference registration fee.

After attending a PACC Congress you’ll look at traditional conferences differently. And anyone who’s attended a previous Congress can tell you that we achieve that objective. But don’t take our word for it: See for yourself.
