IAPP Hosts Inaugural Privacy Engineering Section Forum

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

The Privacy Place’s Prof. Annie Antón announced the inaugural International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) Privacy Engineering Section Forum by noting the following:

We are only just beginning to define this emerging field and we want you to be a part of that process. Today, roughly 40 percent of IAPP membership are lawyers who may want to join the Privacy Bar Section. For the remaining majority, we hope a large number will find a home in the Privacy Engineering Section. If your work in any way engages you in either developing, assessing or using methodologies, tools and techniques that seek to engineer privacy into systems, the IAPP Privacy Engineering Section is for you.

Check out this sample job description for privacy engineers. If there’s overlap with your current responsibilities or if you are interested in helping to define or better understand Privacy Engineering, the IAPP Privacy Engineering Section Forum is a great opportunity.  You may also be interested in joining the IAPP or learning more about the IAPP Privacy Engineering Section.
