Privacy and security teams are often painted as adversaries in compliance. While it’s true that privacy, security, and risk professionals often come from different backgrounds and interests, they are united in their shared pursuit of compliance and events like the IAPP Privacy. Security. Risk. 2017 illustrate the way these fields are converging.

The schedule for this annual event goes further to illustrate the intersection of these compliance disciplines, featuring security and IT content, extensive privacy offerings, and even a session titled “Holy Career Conflict! Privacy and Security Doesn’t have to be Batman Vs Superman.”

Now more than ever, it’s critical for professionals working in privacy, security, and risk across multiple industries to come together and discuss the challenges and the solutions of the field.

Attending PSR 2017 this month? With more programming than ever before, figuring out which sessions to catch can be daunting. Consider the sessions below, featuring RADAR team members, as you plan your schedule. Refer to the IAPP schedule for additional details.
