The General Counsel Forum: 4th Quarterly Event | DFW Chapter - Data Privacy: Inside Scoop You Need to Know


Ed Lavergne (DC) is a panelist at the General Counsel Forum (DFW Chapter) 4th Quarterly Event, "Data Privacy: Inside Scoop You Need to Know" on Wednesday, September 12, 2012. Data security breaches are on the rise and businesses are amassing more personal data than ever. As a result, government regulators and plaintiffs are more closely scrutinizing how businesses collect, store, and share personal information. Businesses that have lax data security and privacy practices or that otherwise fail to comply with new privacy and data security laws increasingly are being held accountable. This panel will provide an overview of US and international laws in this area including steps that businesses can take to reduce their exposure to liability.
