Media Experts to Discuss Dangers of Navigating in "Privacy Storm" During 2004 IAPP Summit

Journalists, Media Executives Hold Forth on Perceptions and Privacy’s Role in Current Events

Philadelphia, PA, February 10, 2004 – A panel of privacy journalists, legal experts and media executives will discuss perceptions of privacy and how to “Manage a Media Privacy Storm” at the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) 2004 Privacy & Data Security Summit & Expo. The panel includes Rebecca Lieb, Executive Editor, Interactive Marketing Channel, Jupitermedia; Drew Clark, Senior Writer, National Journal, Technology Daily; Jonathan Krim, Washington Post; Declan McCullagh, Senior Writer, CNET Networks; Ken Magill, New York Sun; Jules Polonetsky, Vice President, Integrity Assurance, AOL, Inc.; and John Kamp, of Counsel, Wiley, Rein and Fielding (moderator).

The IAPP Privacy and Data Protection Summit takes place February 18 – 20 at the Washington
Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC.

“Recent events at JetBlue, the legal furor surrounding the Do Not Call Registry, and issues such as spam
and identity theft illustrate how the media’s understanding and coverage of privacy issues plays a huge role
in shaping the public’s perception of privacy,” said John Kamp, the moderator of the panel and former
journalism professor. “Understanding privacy from a journalist’s perspective will pay dividends for privacy
professionals who want to avoid getting caught up in the Media Privacy Storm as well as to help prepare
effective communications contingency plans.”

Sponsored by the International Association of Privacy Professionals, the conference features 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 also features leading speakers from the
FTC, DHS, and Treasury Department; as well as top privacy professionals from IBM, Wyeth
Pharmaceuticals, Microsoft, AOL, Countrywide, Hewlett-Packard, Nationwide, eBay, AT&T Wireless,
USPS, Eastman Kodak, and Wells Fargo Bank.
