As the state of privacy continues to evolve rapidly it’s becoming more mainstream with increased awareness and changing expectations from consumers and business. In honor of Data Privacy Day, in partnership with the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection Conference, the National Cyber Security Alliance will host revered leaders from both sides of the Atlantic to initiate a practical and solutions-focused dialogue addressing the current state and future of privacy.

U.S. consumer awareness about privacy continues to progress.

How will consumers’ perceptions effect how business approaches privacy and drive change?
