Now in its 23rd year, Black Hat USA is a leading information security and training event, providing attendees with the latest security research, development, and trends.

During the online conference, Spirion will showcase its suite of data protection solutions for SaaS, cloud, and on-premise personal data discovery and classification in the virtual Business Hall. Spirion executives Gabriel Gumbs, Head of Product Strategy and Chief Innovation Officer, and Scott Giordano, Vice President and Senior Counsel, Privacy and Compliance, will also share their expert insights on data privacy, providing a mid-year review and look ahead on compliance regulations as speakers for multiple conference sessions.

Spirion's participation at Black Hat USA 2020 include:

Live Interview: "Forget About It! Making Sense of GDPR's Most Notorious Provision" will be held on August 3 at 11:30 a.m. ET (8:30 a.m. PT). This exclusive interview with data security experts Gabriel Gumbs and Nathan Wenzler, Chief Security Strategist for Tenable, will highlight the paradox of the right to be forgotten—the notorious provision of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that allows people to have negative personal information removed from Internet searches and directories. The session will cover data subject and consumer rights under GDPR and CCPA and how businesses are handling increasing privacy and security concerns in the new COVID-19 and remote working era.

Sponsor Briefing: "5 Critical Security and Privacy Lessons From CCPA Litigation" will be held on August 5 at 5:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. PT). Within weeks of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 going into effect, the first CCPA lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Northern California, based on a personal data breach of a retailer and its cloud service provider. Since then more than 46 lawsuits have been filed related to CCPA violations. Spirion's Scott Giordano, Esq., a data protection industry veteran, will take a deep dive into these lawsuits, determine what went wrong, and share critical security and privacy lessons for your data protection program.
