Department of Homeland Security CPO to Address 2003 IAPP Privacy Academy

Third Annual Privacy and Data Security Academy and Expo to
Feature Practical Advice from Front-Line Privacy Experts

Washington, DC, July 14, 2003 – Privacy officers can learn a great deal about meeting the
complex challenges facing them by paying attention to leading figures in privacy policy, and
perhaps no organizational privacy practice is scrutinized more closely than that of the Department
of Homeland Security. That is why the International Association of Privacy Professionals will
present Nuala O’Connor Kelly, Chief Privacy Officer for the Department of Homeland Security, as
a keynote speaker for the 2003 Privacy & Data Security Academy & Expo, October 29 – 31 at the
Chicago Marriott, Downtown.

In one of the first speaking engagements in her new role, Ms. Kelly will share from her early
experiences within the DHS. Complementing Ms. Kelly’s broad public policy perspective, the
Academy will feature other leading figures in privacy policy, presenting hands-on, real-world
training to help guide today’s privacy professional through the gauntlet of existing and emerging
laws and standards.

The Privacy & Data Security Academy & Expo will provide attendees with answers to daily
operational challenges with input from front-line experts and through plenary sessions from
internationally recognized privacy leaders. With a wide array of industry tracks, privacy officers
will gain the background and knowledge needed in areas such as healthcare privacy, financial
privacy, security, technology, marketing privacy and spam.
