Leading privacy management software company to host free GDPR workshops across the United States, Europe, and APAC

May 07, 2018

OneTrust, a global leader in enterprise privacy management software, today announces 30 PrivacyConnect, workshops across the United States, Europe and Asia-Pacific this fall. PrivacyConnect is a practitioner-focused, free half-day local workshop series where privacy professionals can learn from each other about tools and best practices to operationalise their privacy programmes.

OneTrust launched the PrivacyConnect local workshop series in early 2017 with immediate success having over 400 registrations in June alone. The success of the series builds on the deep research that has gone into the session content, the 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.

Workshops incorporate content on understanding data protection and privacy law compliance requirements, including the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well as practical tips on how to operationalise privacy impact assessments (PIA/DPIA), data mapping, and subject rights requests.

PrivacyConnect’s Fall 2017 locations include Washington D.C., Boston, Frankfurt, Seattle, Dublin, San Francisco, Denver, London, Munich, Hong Kong, Vienna, Sydney, Milan, Madrid, Atlanta, Paris, Dallas, San Diego, Philadelphia, New York, Amsterdam, Brussels, Chicago, Geneva Zurich, Copenhagen, and Stockholm.

“The expansion of the PrivacyConnect local workshop series demonstrates OneTrust’s deep privacy research capabilities and the strength of our community around privacy programme best practices,” said OneTrust CEO Kabir Barday, CIPP/US, CIPP/E, CIPM, CIPT.

PrivacyConnect attendees can expect to receive 4.5 IAPP CPE credit hours, comprehensive PIA/DPIA, data mapping and subject rights handbooks, the official GDPR text pocket reference, access to free OneTrust tools and templates, and networking with peers.
