American Bar Association 2019 Corporate Counsel CLE Seminar
Brian Hill will speak at the American Bar Association 2019 Corporate Counsel CLE Seminar in San Antonio, Texas, on February 16, 2019. Hill will present, as part of a panel, "The Data Privacy Revolution: In-House Counsel as Their Companies' First Line of Defense."
The data privacy landscape has changed dramatically, with the passage of California's new privacy law incorporating features of the GDPR, and increased speculation that more states in the U.S. may enact similar laws. In-house counsel from companies that do business throughout the U.S. and abroad will reenact an in-house strategic planning session in which they debate the best way to respond to a hypothetical data privacy crisis and regulatory agency investigation, and decide on the recommendations to make to their GC about compliance with the various, and often inconsistent, laws in the jurisdictions in which they do business.
