Opening at London’s Barbican Centre on Tuesday November 12th, PrivSec Accountability Financial Services (FS) 2019 will explore the relationship between security duties and data privacy in our digital era.
A host of industry leaders will be speaking at the one-day conference, bringing clarity to the myriad of challenges facing the financial services sector as compliancy obligations and competition become ever-more pressing.
The principle of accountability
Among keynote presentations at PrivSec Accountability FS, Bojana Bellamy, President of Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP’s Centre for Information Policy Leadership, will be exploring the significance of accountability when it comes to reconciling business objectives with data law compliance.
Companies in finance are challenged to develop strategy that takes risk, regulation and data compliance into account, as executives bid to drive operational efficiency, bring down cost and boost revenues.
Bojana will examine key areas of concern through the lens of accountability ethics. Audience members will then be advised on practical steps organisations can take to bring down barriers to data productivity in a way that satisfies data law and unlocks new business benefits.
