In the past 5 years businesses felt the increasingly intricate data management rules (GDPR, CCPA, BIPA) pressed against an explosion in hacking and ransomware. Companies experience pressure from legislators, regulators, litigators, hackers, and their own customers’ growing privacy concerns. Now comes a flurry of legislative shifts, including passage of new omnibus privacy laws passed in California, Colorado, Virginia (and soon Utah), as well as bills addressing cybersecurity, and laws that govern specific data uses or activities, like capturing biometrics or geolocation data. Moves toward data localization cloud the international data picture. How do companies handle these changes at the same time as evolving cyber threats and increased public scrutiny for data-related activities?
This discussion brings perspectives across private and public sectors to offer practical strategies to reduce these unavoidable compliance risks.
