TRUSTe Privacy Automation Forum in NYC

By Dave Deasy, VP, Marketing at TRUSTe

Last week we held the second in a series of forums designed to bring together privacy and compliance executives to participate in a highly interactive discussion on emerging trends impacting the field of data privacy management along with the opportunity to share best practices and explore new solutions for managing these challenges. Unlike many privacy events, these events are focused on how to solve today’s problems versus merely discussing new policy developments.


You’re Invited! – Upcoming Privacy Innovation & Technology Meetup


On Dec. 10, TRUSTe will host the Privacy Innovation & Technology Meetup happy hour event for those working in (or interested in) privacy and security.

Meet others who work in your field, share stories and enjoy the holiday atmosphere with snacks and refreshments. We’ll also unveil our line-up of interesting guest speakers and topics for 2015. And at 7:30, group organizers will give a speech and announce the evening’s raffle winners!

This is the second Meetup of this recently revived group. The purpose of this group is to let privacy professionals network, discuss hot privacy and security topics and learn more about the growing issues in both fields.

The event will take place at the TRUSTe offices in San Francisco, located at 835 Market Street, suite 800 from 5:30-8 p.m.

Register for this event on Meetup. We hope to see you there!

TRUSTe To Host Upcoming Privacy Automation Forum In NYC


A select group of senior privacy, risk and compliance professionals will convene in New York City on Dec. 4 to discuss the issues they encounter working in the evolving field of privacy.

The Privacy Automation Forum is the second of two events hosted by TRUSTe with the first taking place at TRUSTe’s headquarters in San Francisco in mid-November. The purpose of these forums is to get a better understanding of the problems faced by privacy professionals from a wide range of industries, and to allow them to provide input on our product design and future product roadmap.

“We want to get top-level privacy professionals together in a small group setting in order to discuss the issues they face to determine how TRUSTe can help alleviate those concerns,” said TRUSTe CEO Chris Babel. “This is truly an interactive learning opportunity for both attendees and TRUSTe.”

According to recent IAPP research, managing privacy audits and assessments is one of the top priorities for privacy professionals. However, for many organizations this process can be overwhelming, due in part to continually changing regulatory requirements. The new TRUSTe Assessment Manager, part of our Data Privacy Management (DPM) Platform, automates the end-to-end management of privacy assessments via a powerful, easy to use SaaS-based solution leveraging TRUSTe’s extensive privacy expertise and leading edge technology tools.

In addition to discussion and networking, attendees will get a demo of the DPM Platform and get a chance to provide feedback to TRUSTe.

These forums are invite-only. For those invited, you can register for this event by clicking here.
