Event summary

Because businesses today are driven by data and digital assets, data privacy and cybersecurity have become mission-critical issues. PLI’s annual conference focuses on the latest developments and strategic approaches to keep lawyers and other privacy and cybersecurity professionals up to date – and ready to respond effectively in this complex and dynamic area.

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.

Privacy and Cybersecurity: Governance, Oversight, and Risk Management

Cooley cyber/data/privacy partner Lei Shen was one of three speakers on this panel, which highlighted the importance of implementing a meaningful data privacy and security governance structure led by senior executives. This session also identified regulatory trends in cyber risk, disclosures and board oversight, and addressed third-party risk in terms of due diligence programs and M&A transactions.

After completing this session, participants were be able to:

  • Understand important privacy and data security governance and risk management principles and industry recognized standards, especially in light of developing AI governance models.
  • Identify privacy and security governance trends and board oversight considerations.
  • Understand the new Securities and Exchange Commission cybersecurity disclosure rules – and their impact on management and board oversight.
  • Recognize privacy and security risk management considerations in third-party and M&A transactions.
