Event summary

Because businesses today are driven by data and digital assets, data privacy and cybersecurity issues have become mission-critical. The internet, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, and evolving information technologies employ powerful tools to collect, combine, analyze, use, store and dispose of personal information. The November 2022 release of ChatGPT has fueled a firestorm of questions about the great responsibility that comes with the extraordinary power of data-driven generative AI. These rapidly changing data trends create a wide range of compliance and liability issues, while raising the stakes for protecting data in challenging risk environments – ranging from internal vulnerabilities to criminal cyberattacks and other threats. New laws and obligations are continually emerging from legislators, regulators and the courts to address corresponding privacy and cybersecurity implications. This annual conference focuses on the latest developments, along with strategic approaches, to keep attorneys and other privacy and cybersecurity professionals up to date and ready to respond effectively in this complex and dynamic area.

Litigation in Privacy and Data Security

Travis LeBlanc, Cooley partner and co-chair of the firm’s global cyber/data/privacy practice, was one of three speakers on this panel, which discussed the evolving privacy and data security landscape and litigation arising from data breaches, failure to implement reasonable security measures, and violations of federal laws (including the Video Privacy Protection Act of 1988) and state-specific data privacy and biometric laws.

After completing this session, participants were able to:

  • Understand the privacy and data security litigation landscape, recent notable regulatory enforcement actions and what to track in the near future.
  • Evaluate gating procedural issues for plaintiffs and strategic considerations for defendants.
  • Recognize regulatory requirements to avoid potential litigation and enforcement actions.
  • Manage data security incidents, maintain attorney-client privilege and defend against future litigation.
