The WiE Philadelphia Chapter invites you to our March 11th meeting!

Brave New World: The Evolution of Data Privacy and Cybersecurity and How it is Affecting the Practice of Law

The presentation will provide an overview of the historical background on data privacy in Europe and the origins and evolution of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will also examine what is happening domestically with the California Consumer Privacy Act, and other domestic regulations, both pending and active legislation. We will discuss New York's Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security (SHIELD) Act and how that law marries data privacy and cybersecurity principles. Finally we will discuss how these new laws are affecting the practice of law and what practitioners needs to be aware of in terms of law firm compliance and how to properly advise clients.
