With data breaches continuing to make headlines, safeguarding the privacy of sensitive customer data has become a business-critical requirement for companies around the world. We have seen data breach notification laws proliferate since the enactment of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California's Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). There is no "one size fits all" solution to data privacy but there are a lot of requirements and factors to consider. This session, presented by Elizabeth Del Cid of Murphy & McGonigle P.C. and Shahryar Shaghaghi of CohnReznick LLP, will cover data privacy drivers, rules and regulations, and practical steps that companies can take to comply with these requirements when collecting, storing, processing, and sharing personal information.
