Since adoption of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2016, government entities around the word have been proposing and implementing new data privacy measures with increasing frequency. In the U.S., several individual states are currently addressing the issue of citizens’ data privacy rights, with California and New York both recently approving new statewide regulations. Each of these directives imposes certain duties on businesses, significantly impacting the methods and processes used to manage information in their possession. For many corporations, such new data privacy rules and regulations will come at great financial and organizational expense. In planning on how…

A technology-based approach to facing a potential economic downturn Legal departments are always looking for ways to limit risk for their organizations. When a legal department itself is not prepared for changes in economic or regulatory circumstances, it could be courting real disaster. Members of the general counsel’s team who fail to implement effective compliance, collaboration, and case management technologies and procedures are insufficiently prepared to reduce organizational risk. Compliance GCs and their staff must stay abreast of applicable rules and regulations, as the risks associated with noncompliance are significant. Proper planning can mitigate the threat of statutory fines and…
Another year, another ILTACON. That makes 11 of the past 15 that I have been lucky enough to attend. It was a well-attended conference this year, record-breaking in fact, and I congratulate the organizers for an event marked by deeper peer-to-peer engagement than previous years.
