As companies transfer more electronic data across international borders, legal and IT departments must focus on increasing corporate risk and exposure to laws and regulations – as well as an increased risk of malicious hacks and inadvertent breaches.  Navigating the sometimes conflicting data protection frameworks governments implement can cause confusion, uncertainty, and reputational damage.  Legal teams must ensure that effective information governance programs protect data while communications teams ensure that reputations survive data disasters.

Join us for a 60-minute, global presentation from New York, Chicago, Hong Kong, and Cologne, Germany, as our panel of legal, technical, and communications experts discuss major data protection frameworks across the world, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Privacy Shield, and US and APAC data protection initiatives.  Our panelists will explore strategies for navigating conflicting data protection laws as well as ideas for designing information governance and crisis communications programs to ensure that corporate data and reputations are protected.

Educational Objectives:
Program participants will learn:
• The international legal and regulatory landscape surrounding data protection
• The top risks that arise when engaging in cross-border transfers
• Tips and tools for creating an effective information governance program particularly in relation to global transfers of data
• Best practices for crisis communications

Who would benefit most from attending this program?
In-house counsel; outside counsel; any legal professional working with privacy and information governance issues; any professionals dealing with international data issues.
