It is with great admiration that we dedicate the 19th Annual Privacy & Security Conference to Joseph Alhadeff’s memory. Joseph Alhadeff, a wonderful man and brilliant privacy expert who worked for Oracle, passed away in May 2017 at the age of 57. Many of you will remember Joe as he has graced the stages of the Privacy & Security Conference for almost all of its past 18 years. We invite you to celebrate his life with us during the conference. Join subject matter experts and close friends of Joe’s at the panel session “What Would Joe Do?” as they reminisce about his career and discuss his outlooks on today’s pressing privacy and security issues.
