In the United States, the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) announced a new strategic alliance with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not-for-profit organization seeking to promote best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing. The two bodies say the new alliance will broaden the educational and networking opportunities available for IAPP and CSA members by bringing together the IAPP’s Privacy Academy and the CSA Congress 2014 this autumn. The joint event will take place September 17-19, 2014, at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California.
Trevor Hughes, CIPP, President and CEO of the IAPP, said: “We are delighted that the IAPP and CSA can bring these two industry-leading conferences together under one roof. Through this union, this event is now the center of gravity for information governance and management professionals to navigate the continually evolving challenges of the digital economy.”
Jim Reavis, CEO of the CSA, said: “Cloud security and privacy matters continue to twist and turn, especially given events of late, with the industry in constant pursuit for the best knowledge and practices to stay ahead of what’s next in securing all forms of computing. This joint event will do that and so much more. Both the IAPP and CSA possess strong track records in delivering powerful content that is informative, practical and immediately useful to today’s security professionals and enterprises. We are tremendously excited with this new alliance and look forward to building a program in the coming months to bring CSA and IAPP members a new and exciting event.”
The joint conference information and submission forms will be made available on the both organisations’ websites.
