The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) is a global non-profit organization that brings together industry, academics, civil society, policymakers, and other stakeholders to explore the challenges posed by technological innovations while exploring privacy protections, ethical norms, and workable business practices.
FPF’s Training Program provides an in-depth understanding of today’s most pressing privacy and data protection topics. FPF staff experts design the sessions for professionals who develop policies for their organizations, work with clients on complex privacy issues, or those interested in emerging privacy topics.
