Privacy + Data Security
New York, NY
Miriam H. Wugmeister
In the past couple of years, there have been several massive and well-publicized data security incidents in the U.S. and in Japan, and, consequently, data security is an area of growing legal regulation and enforcement.
Japan has enacted comprehensive national privacy legislation with its Law Concerning the Protection of Personal Information (“Japan Privacy Law”) that went into effect earlier this year.
While the U.S. does not yet have such a comprehensive national legislation addressing privacy and data security, legislation is growing in a patchwork fashion, in certain industry areas and on a state by state basis, with California being the trailblazer.
Data security compliance is no longer an issue that can be left to the IT department, and is an issue that should be a top priority for any company.
This seminar will offer participants specific information on:
Privacy and data security laws in the U.S.
