Twenty-Second Annual Institute on Privacy and Cybersecurity Law


Practising Law Institute


Information privacy, cybersecurity and data protection are among the most important issues for global organizations today.  The Internet and evolving information technologies have prompted the development of powerful tools for the collection, use, storage, and disposal of personal information. More than ever, businesses are driven by data and digital assets.  These trends create a wide range of compliance risk and liability issues associated with the processing of personal 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 these developments with the goal of keeping attorneys and other privacy and cybersecurity professionals informed and up to date in this complex and dynamic area.
