The September 2023 AccessPrivacy Call featured an engaging discussion with Elizabeth Denham, former U.K. Information Commissioner at the Information Commissioner’s Office and currently Chief Strategy Officer at The Information Accountability Foundation (IAF), and Martin Abrams, IAF’s Chief Policy Innovation Officer. During the webinar, AccessPrivacy lead Adam Kardash moderated a broad conversation with the two privacy experts who provided their perspectives on the themes and trends in the evolving global privacy arena.

Over the course of the call, Adam and his guests weighed in on developments in the area and considered a number of topics, including
