The keynote address for IAPP's Global Privacy Summit will be provided by Apple CEO Tim Cook, to kick off the event on April 12.

The International Association of Privacy Professionals, or IAPP, hosts an annual event called the Global Privacy Summit. It calls itself the "most comprehensive data privacy event on the planet" and Apple CEO Tim Cook will headline the keynote address.

The event begins on April 12 at 9AM and features over 200 expert speakers. Other keynote speakers include FTC Chair Lina Khan, NYT bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell, European Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders, and Microsoft President Brad Smith.

IAPP describes Tim Cook as follows:

Apple CEO Tim Cook believes privacy is a fundamental human right. A tireless advocate for the privacy rights of users, Apple announces new privacy and data security features yearly that help protect consumers. This will be Cook's first appearance at the IAPP, and an opportunity to hear his thoughts on the public policy issues informing the privacy landscape.

Tim Cook also attended the European Computers, Privacy & Data Protection conference in Brussels in 2021. He and Apple tend to take advantage of events like these to restate Apple's commitment to privacy.

Apple puts privacy first across its ecosystem of devices like using end-to-end encryption or features like App Tracking Transparency. More privacy related features are expected to be announced during the 2022 Worldwide Developer Conference to be held in June.
