Cyber Security, Data Privacy and Technology

Corporations and law firms around the world are constantly dealing with cybersecurity, data privacy and other important technology issues, both in business and, where available, in litigation discovery. Burgeoning technologies are placing new and increasing demands on in house and outside lawyers and their clients. All are being challenged to meet new and strict data privacy and security guidelines and the consequences for failing to meet these requirements can be devastating. This committee will address the differing substantive laws globally in these areas, and be of interest to many other committees whose members and activities are impacted by technology.
