Authentication Issues Examined at 2003 Privacy Academy

Authentication Experts, Technologies and Techniques Featured in Security Track

Philadelphia, PA, September 23, 2003 – Data security and user authentication are keys to many
components of privacy regulatory compliance, and central to the protection of individual privacy in
today’s digital world. There is no shortage of options for organizations in search of technologies to
help them meet new and emerging requirements, and the International Association of Privacy
Professionals (IAPP) has assembled a number of informational sessions and keynotes for the 2003
Privacy & Data Security Academy & Expo to be held October 29 -31 in Chicago.

Among the expert speakers and panelists the IAPP has secured are David Hoffman, group counsel,
eBusiness and director of privacy, Intel Corporation; Christine Varney, partner, Hogan and Harston,
chairman of the board, TRUSTe, and counsel, Liberty Alliance; and Ari Schwartz, associate director,
Center for Democracy and Technology.

“Authentication technologies and methodologies are linchpins to developing safe, secure, and
trustworthy organizations where privacy protection is of paramount concern,” said IAPP executive
director Trevor Hughes. “With so many options bombarding the marketplace, it is vitally important
that privacy and security professionals understand the fundamentals of authentication in order to make
sound decisions for the benefit of privacy protection.”

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.
