Recent Developments in Digital Privacy & Data Security
As information increasingly moves to the cloud, as systems become ever more interconnected, and as remote access to data becomes the norm, issues concerning digital privacy and data security have come to the fore. The aggregation and sharing of information in digital environments have led to significant innovations and improvements in commerce, services, and other aspects of our lives. Yet reports of cyberattacks, snooping, and misuse of information can seem almost commonplace, and consumers, citizens, and businesses alike have become more concerned and engaged. Our top-flight panel of practitioners will explore an array of timely topics, such as new government regulation in the area of privacy and security; the role of government investigations and enforcement actions and private class action litigation in remedying unlawful conduct; and shaping future behavior, and steps that companies should be taking now to reduce and address potential cybersecurity and liability risks.
Panelists: Matthew D. Brown, Partner, Cooley (Moderator); Blake Lawit, Vice President, Legal, LinkedIn; Nicole Ozer, Tech Policy Director, ACLU of Northern California; Ben Richman, Partner, Edelson P.C.; Rosemarie Ring, Partner, Munger Tolles & Olson
