Tech Prom To Welcome Giovanni Buttarelli


As if FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s remarks at CDT’s Annual Dinner on the heels of the vote on new Open Internet rules aren’t enough of a reason to attend, we have another exciting speaker to welcome: Giovanni Buttarelli.

Giovanni Buttarelli is the newly appointed European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) and he has already announced big plans to ensure data protection reform is adopted this year, stating “the time has come to make privacy and data protection more effective in the digital environment.”

Focusing on the interests of the individual consumer, Buttarelli has called for Big Data Protection and a New Deal on Transparency. He’ll bring the valuable European perspective to our night of networking among the very best in tech policy. Join us for Tech Prom to hear Buttarelli’s remarks firsthand.

Our Annual Dinner, fondly known as Tech Prom, is taking place on March 10, 2015 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center here in DC.
