Overview (Program Summary)

Organizations of all sizes have started to recognize an interconnected yet disparate world of Data Privacy. Once an issue for global organizations, corporations and law firms now have to navigate a patchwork of State level Data Privacy provisions. Beyond the State level, several relevant Federal Statutes also have Data Privacy provisions that may reach deeply into many entities. This program is designed as a survey of the enacted State level Data Privacy laws and the identification of states about to enact new legislation. We will also provide an overview of some of the more prominent requirements in the EU and what global companies need to consider to be GDPR compliant. Finally, we will finish the presentation with a “Top 5” discussion on areas where North Carolina organizations should focus their attention to stay ahead of their Data Privacy responsibilities.
