PrivacyCon 2017

Constitution Center 400 7th St SW, Washington, DC 20024 | Directions & Nearby

Event Description

The Federal Trade Commission held its second PrivacyCon conference on January 12, 2017, to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders, including whitehat researchers, academics, industry representatives, consumer advocates, and government regulators, to discuss the latest research and trends related to consumer privacy and data security. The FTC called for research to be presented at the conference.

In addition, this year, the FTC hosted a pre-conference research networking event on the afternoon of January 11, 2017, to provide a platform for government agencies and non-profits that fund or support privacy research to share information about their programs with researchers.
