Contract provisions regarding data privacy and security have become crucial because of the recent upsurge of cybersecurity threats and breaches. These risks have underscored the need for every business to implement strong and effective data management programs to avoid further financial and reputational losses associated with cyberattacks. However, the stream of new privacy laws and the growing patchwork of jurisdictions introducing those laws have brought numerous complexities to this effort.

Along with the ever-evolving data security standards, practitioners should be sure that their clients’ data agreements contain adequate cyber protections and reasonable allocations of risk between those clients and their vendors.

Listen as experienced data security attorneys Kenneth Dort (Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP) and Melissa Krasnow (VLP Law Group LLP) provide a comprehensive discussion of the latest trends, developments, and critical issues surrounding data privacy and security agreements. They will, among other things, offer practical tips and strategies in drafting these provisions in light of recent developments and the current legal landscape.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

  • Data Privacy Laws: Legal Overview
  • Data Privacy and Security Agreements: Trends and Developments
  • Data Management: Challenges and Pitfalls
  • Exploring Effective Data Management Strategies
  • What Lies Ahead
