I'll be at the IAPP Global Summit in a couple weeks. Not sure about PIMM's specifically, but I'm definitely up for sharing a libation or two. I love attending IAPP events - watching the security and privacy folks warily dance around each other is always good sport.
Agreed, It's very good sport. Maybe we can advocate for pervasive mass eavesdropping of everything, but all data is encrypted and no session keys are saved, but if the security people can do acoustic cryptanalysis from ten meters away with the beastie boys playing in the background they can keep whatever they have storage for? 😛
Beyond privacy vs security, my favorite gambit is to find a large group of lawyers and then over drinks loudly opine that I don't think lawyers should be DPOs. There are some very good reasons why someone with a legal hat on finds risk-based propositions difficult so that levels the playing field a little.
