All legal disputes center around data. To ensure defensibility and compliance with new data privacy laws (e.g. CCPA, GDPR), legal professionals must know their organization's data, meaning the legal department must clearly understand how to quickly find and access data requested for compliance or litigation disputes.
According to the newly enacted California Consumer Privacy Act and the GDPR, consumers have the right to obtain personal information stored by businesses and businesses must comply in a timely fashion (less than 40 days) or risk big fines/frequent litigation. It’s imperative that in-house legal departments be able to respond to consumer requests regarding management of their data for a variety of reasons (delete, anonymize, produce, etc.)
Data privacy and cybersecurity regulations from the GDPR to the CCPA make you accountable for vendors and service provides that touch your company's personal data. Yet most companies don’t even know which vendors access, process or store their data – much less how they are protecting it.
Over-retention of data is a big data privacy risk. By implementing defensible data minimization strategies across your organization you can significantly reduce your costs and risks. Data you don't have can't be breached and you don't have to produce it during litigation or for data access requests.
California and Nevada have already enacted two state data privacy laws similar to the GDPR. New York and Texas are not far behind, and the federal government is proposing legislation for national data privacy protections. Hear from experts from CA, NV, TX, NY and the federal government on how they are enforcing or plan to enforce these new data privacy laws.
