Goodwin Hosts “Key Trends in Privacy and Cybersecurity in 2017”

Privacy and cybersecurity continue to be among the top issues facing companies and in-house counsel. From the rise of artificial intelligence and the internet of things (IoT), to ransomware and the Privacy Shield, the ever-evolving privacy landscape presents unique risks for businesses across industries. Please join Goodwin’s newest Privacy partner, former DHS Chief Privacy Officer, Karen Neuman, Goodwin’s Privacy + Cybersecurity practice chair, Brenda Sharton, and other members of the team for a lively session that will address:

  • The intersection of the IoT, artificial intelligence and privacy obligations
  • The business impact of recent changes to the EU privacy law framework on U.S. companies, including the Privacy Shield and General Data Protection Regulation
  • Ransom attacks; including what to do in the event of an attack, the increased use of phishing emails and how these have contributed to the rise in ransom attacks
  • The evolving role of, and risks to, corporate boards in cybersecurity
  • How data driven organizations can prepare for and respond to law enforcement requests for personally identifiable information
  • Potential impact of the incoming administration on privacy and cybersecurity obligations and enforcement
