Why You Should Attend?
It used to be that only “death and taxes” were inevitable, but for attorneys these days, add to that list, “Privacy.” This program will give general practitioners, litigators, corporate counsel, and transactional attorneys a solid grounding in how privacy rules intersect with other practice areas. We will also introduce the basics of security obligations for personal information and regulatory enforcement. At the conclusion of this fundamentals course, you will know where to start when your client asks that privacy law question, you will recognize when privacy impacts a transaction, and you will understand “PII” definitions vary around the world.

What You Will Learn?
• The basics of information security for personal information
• The legal fundamentals for privacy protections
• The difference between “privacy” and “security”
• The connection of privacy law with key practice areas, including health, financial services, communications, and third parties
• The general primer on international privacy laws, such as the EU GDPR
• The response and remediation from data breach and regulatory inquires

Who Should Attend?
This introductory program is intended for general and solo practitioners, transactional attorneys, general and corporate counsels, in-house lawyers and legal professionals supporting any client with information risk issues.
