Modelled on the highly successful IADC Corporate Counsel College that is held each year in the United States, this conference brings together in-house counsel and their law firm counterparts to cover legal issues affecting global companies. Lokke Moerel, a thought leader in data protection law and member of Morrison & Foerster’s leading Privacy + Data Security group, will address the factors that affect users’ acceptance of corporate big data initiatives. Her discussion will explore how companies will not only need to ensure legal compliance, but also take ethical rules into account. Professor Moerel argues that the societal acceptance, and therefore the success, of big data applications depends on these ethical considerations.
