What Is It Good For? Drafting Privacy and Data Security Provisions in Contracts


Created on July 27, 2021





In our increasingly digital and global world, technology and non-technology businesses alike must take the pen on drafting privacy and data security provisions in contracts. From the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) and The Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA), the rapidly changing landscape of privacy and data security laws means that businesses can often find themselves at risk of not knowing what they don't know when negotiating agreements.

This program will discuss how to identify when privacy and data security provisions may be required in agreements and give an overview of common issues when drafting and negotiating such terms. This program will benefit in-house counsel and corporate attorneys looking to get up to speed on emergent topics in contract drafting.
