Philadelphia, PA, January 20, 2004 – Leaders in privacy protection from the highest levels of
industry, government, and advocacy will address a select audience of committed professionals

On Wednesday, February 18, a gathering of privacy experts representing the Department of
Homeland Security, U.S. Postal Service, U.S. Department of Commerce, Federal Trade
Commission, and the Department of Treasury will gather with representatives of businesses such

discuss the latest federal privacy regulations and technology-based strategies for achieving
compliance with the expanding array of laws. These briefings from front-line privacy leaders offer
critical information for public and private sector organizations.

“With so many federal laws affecting government and business practices, we feel it is important to
give Summit attendees a detailed look into ways technology can help achieve regulatory compliance
