Where’s all the data privacy goodness at Black Hat USA?

By Debra Farber, Host of The Privacy Pact

When reviewing the freshly-announced agenda for the upcoming Black Hat USA 2017 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, I found there to be very little in the way of privacy-related topics and sessions.

 However, I did find a few that touch on the subject, which I’ve listed below. These few won’t keep me busy enough as I look for content and interviews connecting information security to data privacy for my podcast show, #ThePrivacyPact here on ITSPmagazine. So, if you have a story to share with me about privacy and/or the intersection of privacy, security and society, please go ahead and submit a request to meet using our Black Hat 2017 Podcast Interview Request Form. Meaty material may include privacy and big data, AI, IoT, cyber safety, new regulations, education, etc.

Give us your best story - your best pitch. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to meet and talk in Vegas.

In the meantime, these are the top Black Hat USA 2017 sessions that seem to touch on privacy issues.
