Welcome to the 2014 Privacy XChange Forum

Welcome to the second annual Privacy Exchange Forum, a two-day exploration of the Post Privacy Era uniting a diverse group of leaders from the public and privacy sectors at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

In the past year, we've witnessed numerous data breaches impacting a range of industries including financial, retail and health care. Headlines featured high-profile attacks with software bugs such as Shellshock and Heartbleed.

“This forum, The Post Privacy Era, is meant to be a realistic assessment of where things are in the digital world around privacy and a call to action for all of us who are trying find solutions for people and combat these risks in an intelligent way,” said Matt Cullina, chief executive officer at CyberScout, to more than 150 delegates.
