With 2020 set to bring a record high number of data breaches, state legislatures across the country are continuing to strengthen their existing privacy statutes and are creating new ones with an increased focus on consumer protection. This program, presented by Daniel Marvin, leader of Morrison Mahoney LLP’s Cybersecurity and Data Protection Practice, will provide an overview of emerging trends in this legislation, with an emphasis on how the states are shifting their focus towards comprehensive data privacy laws that put more control over how personal data is used in the hands of consumers, and what businesses must do to comply with these regulations. The program will also review the latest developments in data breach litigation to identify trends and topics of interest to attorneys providing advice or counsel to clients in this area.
