PRIVACY BUSINESSJanuary 16, 2014
The IAPP announced today that it has created a new strategic alliance with the Cloud Security Alliance, a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing. The alliance’s most tangible result will be the joining of the IAPP Privacy Academy and CSA Congress into a single event to be held September 17 to 19 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA. “Cloud security and privacy matters continue to twist and turn, especially given events of late, with the industry in constant pursuit for the best knowledge and practices to stay ahead of what’s next in securing all forms of computing,” said CSA CEO Jim Reavis. “Through this union, this event is now the center of gravity for information governance and management professionals to navigate the continually evolving challenges of the digital economy,” said IAPP President and CEO Trevor Hughes, CIPP.
