Description: The January Privacy Lab will be a moderated panel discussion and will consist of attorneys and leaders in privacy law. Data privacy is not a new topic, but has been catching headlines due to companies’ mismanagement of consumers data and large scale data breaches. Corporate legal teams are often tasked with ensuring that data is handled appropriately. These legal teams must stay abreast of new laws addressing data privacy. Given the globalized nature of many consumer services, legal teams must comply with different regulations around the globe, such as GDPR, ePrivacy Regulation, and state-specific privacy laws, such as the evolving California Consumer Privacy Act. This panel will seek to answer not only what data privacy standards must be met, but what standards should be met in anticipation of future laws and the evolving ethical standards of data privacy management.
