The Internet and evolving information technologies have prompted the development of powerful tools for the collection, use, processing, storage, and disposal of personal information. More than ever, businesses are digital and data driven. Morrison & Foerster partner Christine Lyon will contribute to the conference’s discussion of key issues related to information privacy, cybersecurity and data protection faced by businesses in her panel discussion. “Developing Privacy and Security Issues in the Rest of the World” will provide insight into critical questions that businesses should be asking, such as:

  • What are the hot privacy and security trends internationally?
  • Is GDPR setting the international standard?
  • Which countries claim extraterritorial reach?
  • Trends regarding consent and cross-border transfer limitations
  • Is there a common standard for data security?
  • Has breach notification become a universal requirement?
  • Which countries are actively enforcing their privacy and/or security laws?
