Why You Should Attend
Most entities, private or public, collect, process, store, and use personal information that may be protected by privacy-related laws such as the California Consumer Privacy Act, the Illinois BIPA and AI Video Interview Act, and the New York DFS regulations and SHIELD Act. Whether express or implied, these laws impose obligations on entities to protect that personal information from loss or misuse. Those obligations take the form of various security-related requirements such as those described in detail in the SHIELD Act. Moreover, although cybersecurity requirements may be imposed by statutes, various courts across the United States have allowed actions to be maintained against entities for alleged failures to protect personal information. Every attorney and related professionals should know the “reasonable” cybersecurity precautions they should take, how best to take those precautions, and the consequences of failing to do so.
