Almost all companies operate a website as part of the normal course of doing business. For some companies, the website constitutes the main and only business, such as online product retailers without local premises. For others, the website only offers additional information and marketing for the in-person business, as in the case of restaurants. All of these businesses must consider data privacy issues that result from having an Internet presence as well as issues such as the use of cookies when entering new markets and how employee data is processed at foreign business sites.

The faculty presenting this program will outline the most important aspects a company expanding internationally must consider regarding its website including privacy compliance, the use of cookies, the processing of employee data and more. Practical examples given will provide helpful guidance.

Educational Objectives:
• Understand best practices for counseling your clients seeking to – or already engaging in – business in multiple jurisdictions.
• Find out about the most significant issues to consider regarding the protection of customer and employee data when doing business online.
• Learn tips for managing data when your clients’ business website is accessed internationally.

Who would benefit most from attending this program?
Corporate counsel representing companies expanding their Internet business into foreign markets; privacy and data security practitioners.
