Eighteenth Annual Institute on Privacy and Data Security Law - Chicago

Why You Should Attend

This program focuses on current critical issues of information privacy, cybersecurity and data protection faced by all companies. The Internet and evolving mobile and virtualized information technologies, wired and wireless, have prompted the development of powerful tools for the collection, processing, storage and use of personal information. More than ever, businesses are becoming digital and data driven. These trends create a wide range of compliance risk and liability issues regarding corporate rights to use personal information. They also raise the stakes for protecting such data in increasingly challenging risk environments, ranging from internal vulnerabilities to criminal cyberhackers and other persistent threats. Legislators, regulators and the courts are rapidly developing new law and compliance obligations to address the privacy and security implications of expanding information economy and its continuously evolving risks.  This annual conference focuses on these developments with the goal of keeping attorneys and other privacy professionals informed and up-to-date in this complex and dynamic area of laws and regulations.
