Balancing Innovation and Data Protection: Technology, Media and Privacy Considerations
Data privacy and security are central concerns for virtually any entity involved in data transmission and increased reliance on technology and electronic media, especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, is only intensifying these worries. Adding to the escalation is a new regulatory framework— the California Consumer Privacy Act—whose privacy-related requirements are expected to be enforced as of July 1, and under whose provision for a private right of action numerous class actions have already been filed based on alleged insufficient data security protections. Additionally, many states are considering CCPA-like laws, as well as addressing specific privacy and security issues directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This webinar will focus on how companies focused on data technologies and media can balance innovation while simultaneously mitigating privacy and data security risks in the current environment. We will discuss how a robust "privacy and security by design" process, including in relation to specific CCPA requirements, can alleviate future privacy and security problems, operationalize privacy and security in tech transactions and due diligence, manage the increasing pandemic-related privacy and data security issues for tech and media, and help companies prepare for and protect against enforcement and class actions.
