2013 Advertising Week Program: Mission Impossible III: Inside Snowden and Beyond; Sponsored by Davis & Gilbert

New York, NY, September 12, 2013 – For the second consecutive year, Davis & Gilbert is honored to be a part of the 2013 Advertising Week annual privacy forum, “Mission Impossible III: Inside Snowden and Beyond (MI III)”. Davis & Gilbert’s Chairman Ronald R. Urbach will host this forum on September 23 at Manhattan’s Liberty Theater.

As privacy remains the most complex issue facing the advertising and media business, MI III, opens the black box of Edward Snowden with The Guardian, which broke the biggest global story in recent memory. In addition, this forum is rounded out with a select group of experts and key industry leaders on privacy public policy looking at both Washington, DC and Europe. Among the presenters are:

  • Alan Rusbridger, Editor-in-Chief, The Guardian
  • Tim Lefroy, Chief Executive, Advertising Association, UK
  • Dick O'Brien, Executive Vice President and Director of Government Relations, American Association of Advertising Agencies
  • James Harlan Koenig, CIPP, Practice Leader, Privacy & Identity Theft, PwC

This year’s program is presented in partnership with The Guardian.

Last year’s event was comprised of a candid conversation with FTC Commissioner Julie Brill and a unique presentation by Frank Abagnale who was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the blockbuster film “Catch Me if You Can.”
