Privacy Law, Issues and Trends

Data has become the lifeblood of many businesses and entities, as personal attributes, activities, locations, biometrics, purchases, interests, preferences, life events, social media posts and other personally identifiable information have become valuable assets for artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, product development, sales and marketing. While the EU has had a data privacy regime for some time, laws and regulations in the United States regarding privacy and data security have been sporadic, sometimes content- or industry-specific, and not uniform in their requirements. With the passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), states have started to consider data privacy as a personal right to control one’s data. Attorneys advising businesses need to understand relevant current laws and regulations, as well as pending bills that may impose data security obligations and breach liabilities and new rights for consumers to see, correct and delete personal information and control its use.

 

This one-hour seminar will review privacy laws and regulations in the United States, both federal and at the state level, regarding collection, use, storage, protection, transmission, hosting responsibilities and liabilities for personally identifiable data.  It is suitable for attorneys at all levels (newly admitted and experienced) seeking to understand this quickly evolving area of law, as more and more personal data is collected and utilized in new and innovative ways. Relevant current and pending laws and regulations as well as case law will be discussed, along with emerging trends and practice tips.

 

The seminar includes a Q&A session following the presentation.

    Technology-Related Transactions: Protecting Against Risk in an Evolving Environment

    Technology is increasingly a key business asset, enabling some companies to expand in scale, operational efficiencies and scope of services through new or modified software, hardware and telecommunications. The types and complexity of technology-related agreements are evolving as sophisticated algorithms, artificial intelligence (AI), digital content and platforms, the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile apps, websites, social media, Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and other forms of cloud computing expand and advance, changing the risk calculus for a variety of technology-related activities and transactions. The complexity of related contracts is also expanding, including complicated Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and related credits, Key Performance Indices (KPIs), limitations on liability and scope of warranties and indemnities.

     

    This one-hour seminar will review key risk clauses and possible fallback provisions in common technology agreements including for cloud services such as SaaS and PaaS, for use of IoT devices and mobile apps, and for technology development and outsourcing agreements, and will include discussion of data protection terms, vendor co-employment issues, and “work made for hire” clauses, including possible rescission of certain assignments, licenses and transfer of rights by non-employee creators of copyrighted works such as software.

     

    The seminar includes a Q&A session following the presentation.

      Platform-as-a Service and Other Cloud Computing Legal Issues

      Cloud computing is disrupting traditional operating models for IT departments and entire organizations. The cloud is embraced as a critical resource that helps companies make strategic investments and compete in the marketplace. The cloud environment is cost effective, and scalable company benefits include cost reduction, increased operational efficiencies and improved productivity/risks including data security, confidentiality, and control. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), using cloud resources to provide software and platform services under contract, are growing in importance for many companies as a way to offer new services without the expense of creating and maintaining an internal cloud environment or platform. This course will cover general issues in cloud services agreements, key clauses and issues in SaaS Agreements from a buyer’s perspective, key clauses and issues in PaaS agreements from the seller’s perspective, as well as recent cases, legislation and trends regarding cloud computing, including the Internet of Things.
