American Conference Institute's 14th Annual Legal and Compliance Forum

The ever increasing use of social media by employees in the workforce, increase in cyber attacks, and privacy violations with online behavioral advertising have prompted federal and state regulators to create stricter initiatives to protect the privacy of consumer and employee information. The industry is evolving and changing at a rapid pace.

It is imperative that leaders in the industry including financial institutions, retailers, insurance companies, and social media companies take note of the many and different ways privacy can be threatened in the face of advanced and sophisticated technology. Organizations and their counsel must be prepared and have data prevention plans in place in the event of a major security breach.
