In November 2018, the Office of Privacy and Data Protection hosted Privacy Matters -- our third intensive one-day summit covering privacy issues in technology and the law. 

Similar to our 2017 conference “Start with Privacy”, we were pleased to together over 150 leaders from 58 organizations across academia, government, law and the tech world to “dive deeply” into hot topics such as the impact of new technologies on privacy, the increasing use of personal information in a data-driven economy and the advent of Artificial Intelligence. 

Full conference materials are available from the Agenda page.


  • Welcome from Governor Jay Inslee via video
  • Keynote by Senator Reuven Carlyle proposed a state law privacy framework for Washington
  • International perspectives from British Columbia's OIPC and the UK Consul in Seattle offered insights into privacy activities and laws in a variety of mature legal frameworks
  • Introduced “Privacy Checklists” -- the latest web-based tool from the Office of Privacy and Data Protection



Respondents evaluated 100% of the substantive sessions as likely or certain to be useful in their work during the coming year.
