In recent years, data privacy issues have taken on an ever-increasing role in global business and world politics. While news stories focus on whether the National Security Agency is listening in on calls, or whether people’s houses are shown on an Internet map, data privacy issues have much more far-reaching impacts. Given that the scope of electronic discovery and the amount of data reviewed and produced during U.S. litigation continues to expand exponentially, these issues cannot be ignored during litigation, particularly in view of the substantial penalties potentially available for breaches of data privacy laws and regulations.
This webinar will review recent developments in data privacy law worldwide, and discuss the impacts of those developments on U.S. litigation. Because significant attention has been devoted to the European Union’s efforts to update the Data Protection Directive, the webinar will only briefly address the EU, and instead will focus primarily on the Asia-Pacific and Latin American regions.
