EU Privacy Intensive Day 2017

Intensive Day – Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017

Intensive Days are all-day events that feature primarily small discussion groups among seasoned professionals. Intensive Days differ from workshops in that workshops are shorter and more introductory in nature.

Intensive Days are for seasoned professionals, and the discussion will be focused and advanced. Intensive Days are for deep dives into topics.

The EU Privacy and Security Intensive Day is a way to join your peers in a sophisticated series of discussions about cutting-edge issues involving privacy and security. There will be unparalleled interactivity. Most of the day will be spent in seminar-style discussion groups.

It is a special all-day event — like a “seminar within a conference” — that will occur on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017, the day prior to the Privacy+Security Forum. They feature small group discussions among seasoned professionals. The conversations will be focused and advanced, with unparalleled interactivity. Intensive Days differ from Workshops in that Workshops are shorter and more introductory in nature.
