Sitting on the train after a tough day at the office, you need to decompress and pop open Instagram to scroll through pictures of exotic travel locations, updates on what your neighbor's dog had for brunch and other critical status updates. The dopamine rush of social media is a brief respite from the workday blues and since its 'free' billions of people happily sign up, turning over data without reading a single word in that EULA. Breaches, misuse, and lack of transparency are frequently in the headlines and people want answers about what is happening with their data. Now Facebook, Twitter, Google and other big tech representatives make regular appearances on Capitol Hill, GDPR has taken effect in the EU, CCPA has been approved in California, and other states are looking to implement their own data protection laws. Increasingly patchwork regulations create a harrowing web for any company or law firm to navigate. Join our panel of experts to discuss the current data privacy regulatory landscape, best practices for data controllers, and what the future holds for data privacy regulation.
