PRIVACY AND OUTSOURCING: HOT TOPIC AT UPCOMING P&AB LANDMARK CONFERENCE
Available electronically, Conference attendees will have the seven unique privacy publications and resources at their virtual fingertips to easily access and share with colleagues.
June 14 , 2004//Hackensack, NJ: As part of the rising national debate on outsourcing where protection of personal information has now become a focus, industry leaders are set to discuss privacy and security issues in data outsourcing at Privacy & American Business (P&AB) Tenth Annual National Conference. Expert speakers will focus on what will happen to the outsourcing issue after this years presidential elections, the privacy lessons to be learned from the outsourcing debate, and how this debate is shaping inside India.
"This outsourcing issue has become a hot potato here and abroad now that new state and federal legislation is centered on privacy and data protection, and not job losses," said Dr. Alan Westin, President & Publisher, P&AB. "Has Indias post-election climate and change of government derailed real movement toward a national privacy law? With a volatile pre-election climate in the U.S., will companies find themselves on shifting grounds? This is the right time to see where things stand."
Panelists for this session, "Outsourcing and Privacy," include Richard M. Rossow, Director of Operations, U.S.-India Business Council; Becky Burr, Partner, Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, LLP; and Jon Neiditz, Counsel, Hunton & Williams.
Stage is Set for Landmark Conference
The Conference, "New Challenges, New Strategies, New Dangers" and Privacy Practitioners Workshop, are set for June 22-24, 2004 at the Wyndham Washington Hotel in D.C. Last years Conference received kudos for its timeliness and high calibre "in-the-know" speakers. This years Conference, sponsored by Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, LLP, Zion National Bank, and Intersections, promises to be even better.
Easy to Access Conference Materials
Successful at P&ABs recent HR Privacy Conference last month, Conference organizers have decided to make publications available in a more easy to use "no carrying" format. This move will make the seven Conference publications more accessible than ever as Privacy Practitioners can now keep these essential resources at their virtual fingertips on their own desktop. Electronic publication also allows for easy sharing of these tools between colleagues via e-mail or office network.
Attendees will also go back to their posts armed with unique tools and resources, including:

Top Notch Program
Attendees at past conferences know this is not a canned program. Conference organizers examine not just the current privacy issues facing your organizations CIO, Privacy Officer, and legal, marketing, IT and other departments, but the challenges they will need to overcome tomorrow. P&ABs leaders always provide an agenda, speakers and materials that are ahead of the curve.
Workshop attendees should look forward to sessions on involving the CIO in privacy management; making privacy policies shorter and better; privacy ratings and independent verification; permission marketing in the pharmaceutical industry; understanding business obligations under the FACT Act; and case studies where organizations are effectively applying the privacy rules.
Aside from releasing the survey results, expert speakers on Day One will take a close look at privacy activity in the states and at the federal level this past year, and what is expected to come in 2004-2005; homeland security and the role of business; identity management and verification. Day Two will offer attendees opportunities to hear about the new environment for permission marketing; privacy in the mobile world; EU-U.S. negotiations on transborder issues; and the latest debate on outsourcing.
