Smart phones and interconnected cars and other devices are collecting massive amounts of personal data. Today’s smart phones contain the “privacies of life,” according to Chief Justice Roberts. As a result, institutions from the Supreme Court to local police departments are struggling with how such technologies will impact everything from law enforcement efforts to efforts to protect the same information through robust privacy protections.

Join ABA and Mayer Brown partner Raj De for a program that will focus on how explosive technological growth is necessarily changing traditional legal norms. Panelists will focus on the practical implications of these changes for practitioners and businesses. In doing so the panel will discuss recent Supreme Court rulings (including Carpenter and cases currently pending before the Court), various legislative proposals that have been introduced, and the impact of Trump Administration policies on privacy and technology in this space.

The goal of the panel is to outline the various and fast evolving technologies, highlight the legal, privacy and constitutional concerns associated with the collection and movement of massive amounts of data, lay out the statutory and legal framework for thinking about these issues, and provide practical advice and solutions to lawyers and companies struggling to make sense of it all.
