IAPP and Government Experts Convene Privacy Boot Camp

Intensive Session Focuses on Compliance with Array of New Federal Privacy Laws

Philadelphia, PA, October 22, 2003 – Leaders in privacy protection from the highest levels of
industry, government, and advocacy will address a select audience of committed professionals
during The Privacy & Data Security Academy & Expo in downtown Chicago from October 29
through 31.

On Wednesday October 29, there will be a Government Privacy Boot Camp session. Senior
privacy professionals from OMB, DHS, IRS, USPS, Census Bureau, Center for Democracy and
Technology, and Watchfire will present the latest on federal privacy requirements and best
practices, including privacy impact assessments and other E-government requirements. These
first-hand briefings from the key players on the scene will provide critical for public and private
sector organizations.

“With so many new federal laws affecting government and business practices, we felt it was
important to give Academy attendees a ‘crash course’ option for becoming familiar with the ways
the new regulations will impact the government privacy landscape,” said Zoe Strickland, chief
privacy officer, United States Postal Service, and an IAPP board member. “Whether you are new
to the privacy profession, or a grizzled veteran, the Government Privacy Boot Camp will be a vital
resource for understanding the fast-paced world of federal regulation.”

Sponsored by the International Association of Privacy Professionals, the conference will feature
the latest guidance on spam, identity theft, federal and state privacy activities, healthcare and
financial privacy, as well as security, technology, and marketing issues. The conference will feature
leading speakers from the FTC, California state government, CIPL, Oracle, GE, DaimlerChrysler,
Microsoft, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, IBM, Kodak, and DoubleClick.
