OneTrust launched its GDPR workshop series (formerly titled SmartPrivacy) in early 2017, and saw immediate success with 3,000 registrations across 40 global events in its first year. The series’ success was largely due to its deep privacy research, subject matter expertise, vendor-agnostic approach to privacy management tools, and practitioner-focused peer-to-peer discussions with a high-quality audience of well-respected privacy executives and companies.

“The accelerated growth of our international workshop programme has allowed OneTrust to play a critical role in helping global organisations comply with data privacy regulations,” said OneTrust CEO and Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP), Kabir Barday, CIPP US/E, CIPM, CIPT. “The expansion of PrivacyConnect series demonstrates the strength of our community around privacy programme best practices.”

PrivacyConnect attendees can expect to receive 4.5 CPE credit hours, comprehensive manual with session content, the official GDPR text pocket reference, access to free OneTrust tools and templates, and networking with peers.
