Freshfields Partner and Global Co-Head of Data Privacy and Security Christine E. Lyon will be speaking on “Managing Privacy and Security Developments in the Rest of the World” and moderating the panel, “The Enforcers: Need-to-Know-Now Insights from Privacy and Data Security Regulators.”

Information privacy, cybersecurity, and data protection are among the most important issues for organizations today, as businesses are driven by data and digital assets. The Internet and evolving information technologies have prompted the development of powerful tools for the collection, use, storage, and disposal of personal information.

These trends create a wide range of compliance risk and liability issues associated with that information. They also raise the stakes for protecting this data in increasingly challenging risk environments, ranging from internal vulnerabilities to criminal cyberattacks and other threats. Legislators, regulators, and courts are rapidly developing new laws and compliance obligations to address the privacy and security implications of our expanding information economy and its continuously evolving risks.

This annual conference focuses on the latest developments with the goal of keeping attorneys and other privacy and cybersecurity professionals informed and up-to-date in this complex and dynamic area.

  • What’s new regarding US privacy frameworks, including the California Consumer Privacy Act, California Privacy Rights Act, Virginia Consumer Data Privacy Act, and the Colorado Privacy Act
  • Enforcement priorities of regulators at the federal and state level
  • The latest developments beyond the US, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation, India, Brazil, and China’s strict new privacy law
