Tuesday, April 16 | 11:30AM–12:15PM | Salon E/F
Session Type: Professional Development

Privacy has quickly become an in-demand field that many security professionals aspire to, but how do you move from security to privacy, and what skills are needed to become a chief privacy officer? Following a brief review of the privacy field and framework, this session will focus on the presenters' experience as security and privacy officers at major research institutions, a CPO's requisite skill set, and a typical day in the life of a CPO, the pros and cons of having a dedicated privacy officer (or combining the role with security), and career roadmaps to move into privacy.
