VIENNA, AUSTRIA, January 26, 2023 / — At the dawn of the new era of data privacy, organisations of all sizes and sectors face the challenges posed by new regulations and privacy-enhancing technologies.

On the fifth anniversary of the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Heroes of Data Privacy will bring together the brightest minds in data privacy and data quality in Vienna, from regulators to industry professionals, from marketing leaders to legal experts. In 20+ talks, interviews, panels and breakout sessions, they will discuss current and future trends in data privacy – and share valuable insights on how organisations can overcome the challenges and gain new opportunities.

Lou Montulli, the inventor of the HTTP cookie, will talk about the origins of his innovation that changed the Internet forever.
