DCN events are designed for members to roll up their sleeves and dig into discussions with their peers. Speakers provide insights into their businesses and share real-world examples of what’s working and what’s not. Why? Because these events are closed-door, no press or video and members feel safe sharing their expertise and their questions.

In addition, the content is noticeably different from the PR-approved, substance-light presentations you’ll find at events targeting more general audiences representing the entire digital ecosystem. Members attend because the agenda is focused exclusively on their current issues and there are no consultants or press in the room. There are countless industry events that cater to anyone and everyone – DCN member events are hyper-focused on what publishers need to know today.

Discussion of DCN Roadmap for 2023 Policy and Legal Landscape

CPRA “Off the Record” Digital Dialogue – Defining what to do with the grey area of sensitive data

January 18, 2023
Virtual

A few weeks ago before the holidays, 31 DCN and TRUSTX publisher members convened online for a CPRA “Off the Record” Digital Dialogue. The discussion focused on ways publishers can turn CPRA policy disclosures into differentiators that build trust. Feedback we received about the online discussion was quite positive, and so we’re planning to host another virtual meeting with the planned subject, “defining what to do with the grey area of sensitive data.”
