PRIVACYMarch 17, 2010
At the IAPP's tenth anniversary celebration yesterday, experts offered insight on the future of the data protection field and those who work in it. The privacy professional of the future must be agile, multicultural and engaged in the technologies that are stirring privacy debates, said a panel of seasoned privacy pros. In a moderated forum at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, panelists discussed the growth and evolution of the privacy field over the past decade and offered a sneak peak at what it will look like in the year 2020. Picture this: acrobatic regulators, data protection in the mainstream and, potentially, an ethical code for privacy professionals.
