Jacky Fox looks at the human element within data breaches, exclusively at PrivSec Dublin

Coming to Dublin’s Convention Centre on 23rd and 24th September 2019, PrivSec Dublin is a content-rich conference that explores the close-knit relationship between data privacy and cyber-security.

The most pressing issues on the data protection landscape will go under the microscope at PrivSec Dublin, helping the event’s attendees understand challenges and solutions within lawful data processing.

In a business ecosystem full of technological propositions to our cyber-security and legislative compliance concerns, the human element can often be forgotten. The real impact upon people surrounding a data breach will be at the heart of a talk presented by Jacky Fox, Managing Director at Accenture.
