Privacy Space is an application only video networking event for people working in and with an interest in data protection and privacy.

Privacy Space

Privacy Space is an initiative that aims to bring together privacy and data protection enthusiasts from all over the world into a unique space where everyone is welcome to participate and share their ideas.

With multiple Discussions Rooms in each event, participants can join the conversation they are more interested in and change to another room at any time.

Everyone is welcome to participate

Strengthen your network

Share your ideas and opinions

All type of questions are welcome

Our events will feature private, video 'Discussion Rooms'

These rooms will focus on a particular topic and will be ‘hosted’ to ensure that everyone has a good experience, a chance to speak and join the discussion.

The Discussion Rooms will be a place where anyone can ask questions, discuss with peers and get answers, all without fear of challenge or imposter syndrome.

Privacy space is an initiative that aims to bring together privacy and data protection enthusiasts from all over the world into a unique space where everyone is welcome to participate and share their ideas.

Following the success of our online networking event Privacy Space, we have decided to host our first physical event on the 31st of March here in the Midlands.

For those of you who couldn’t make the online events we believe that it will be a great experience for everyone. It can add real benefit to smaller providers and the DPO/IG community with a safe space to share ideas, network, and make new connections but we do what works for you!
